This year’s route is a 60 plus mile trek through Beaver and Lawrence counties that was designed by Beaver Falls Police Chief John DeLuca and motorcycle patrolman Jim Siget. The caravan will stop at Sheetz in New Castle, and at McGuire Memorial in Daugherty Township before ending with a celebration picnic at Brady’s Run Park. DeLuca and Siget will provide police escort of the “Run For McGuire” on Sunday.
This is the 5th year that WBVP-WMBA has organized and sponsored the “Run For McGuire”. So far, over $15,000 has been raised and donated to help fund the ongoing care and support of the special individuals served by McGuire Memorial. Over 300 people have participated in previous rides. Once again this year, all net proceeds will be donated to the McGuire Memorial Foundation.
