5th Annual Rosarito Beach Harley Run

for Children of Baja Is This Saturday

            ROSARITO BEACH, BAJA CALIFORNIA--- It wouldn’t be summer in Rosarito Beach without the annual Rosarito Beach Harley Run, a benefit ride for the children of Baja , Mexico .

            The organizers, Martin and Sonia Resendez, started it in 2003 with their first Harley Run attracting about 100 bikers. This year’s expected 1,000 riders will travel from the Otay border crossing to their final destination at Papas & Beer, co-sponsor of this event

            Last year, the Rosarito Harley Run donated six truckloads of much needed clothing, shoes, toys, school supplies, and hygiene products for children and disadvantaged families.

            The donations are collected and dispersed by Rosarito’s DIF, Desarrollo Integral de la Familia.  DIF is a well known organization run by the governors’ and mayors’ wives in all cities of Mexico .

            DIF provides shelter, food, clothing, medical, social services and much other assistance to children and families in need. Last year, the Governor's wife participated in the distribution of the Harley Run donations to the many children and families who showed up to the event.

            “This is a significant event for our city because of all the good that is done from their generous donations,” said Rosarito Beach Mayor Hugo Torres.

            The Harley Run has grown every year in number of participants and donations and this year’s Run has riders traveling from as far away as Florida , New York , Arizona , Mazatlan , Guadalajara and Mexico City .

            “We greatly appreciate the contribution members of this group make to needy children and families,” said Rosarito ConVis President Laura Wong.

 The Rosarito Beach Harley Run is known as one of the leading rides of the summer in Southern California as well as south of the border. For more information go www.pushrodwear.com
