Parkview Church Hosts CruZin for KidZ with Cancer Motorcycle Run

The Parkview Church Motorcycle Club of Orland Park gathered up 50 motorcyclists on September 29 and cruised down the road of support during their Second Annual CruZin for KidZ with Cancer Motorcycle Run to benefit the Treasure Chest Foundation. When the last motorcycle cruised to a stop at the end of the run, the club had raised more than $1,700 to help children and teens fighting cancer.

Parkview Church Motorcycle Club President Mike Hoerler said, "I was moved by children having to fight cancer. I'm grateful my children are healthy. I'm a sap for kids."

Parkview Church member Jennifer Babec added, "I'm so happy to participate in this event. When my daughter Taylor received a baby stroller and doll from the Treasure Chest the day she was diagnosed with cancer in November 2007, she was so happy even though she had years of treatment ahead of her."

Colleen Kisel, Founder and CEO of the Treasure Chest Foundation, said, "It was a blessing to have the love and support from the Parkview Church Motorcycle Community.  I could feel God working on behalf of the thousands of little ones we serve."
