The first annual Drake Goetz Memorial Park “Well Water” Ride is planned for Saturday, September 14. The event will take place at the Drake Goetz Memorial Park, 350 E 400 N, at 9 a.m. The park is located about five miles east of the Police Athletic League (PAL) Club on Riverside Drive extended at County Road 400 N.

This is a ‘country style’ bicycle ride that has been organized to help raise funds for the construction of the Drake Goetz Memorial Park, the first ADA approved, all-inclusive community park in Huntington County. Riders are encouraged to pre-register by visiting the following web page at https://runsignup.com and search using the name “Drake Goetz,” and then scroll down and click ‘Drake Goetz Well Water’ to register.

The event cost is $20 per rider or $50 for families of three or more. T-shirts are guaranteed for riders who pre-register prior to August 30. T-shirts will also be given to everyone else while supplies last. All donations and registration fees are tax deductible.
