The Sandy Corley Memorial Run

In 1989, local businessman Sandy Corley, owner of Sandy’s Harley-Davidson Sport Center, and charter member of the Fremont Harley Owner’s Group Chapter #2232, lost his battle with cancer. His family proudly continues to operate the business today, with Marilyn «Ma» Corley the ever proud matriarch leading the pack. Shortly after Sandy’s passing, and in his memory, Barb VanBogelen and Marlene Downing gathered a group of 56 friends to ride 75 miles in the cold rain and sleet to begin what is know as the Sandy Corley Memorial Run. This year marks the 28th Annual Sandy Corley Memorial Run, to be held June 9th, 10th & 11th at the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury. The progression of the Run has been eventful and steady. We went from a small hometown run to one known across the country, with over 10,000 in attendance for the three day event. From the benefit Bash in April to the Check Presentation Ride in August, our volunteers work to make the Sandy Corley Memorial Run one of the premier charitable motorcycle events in the mid west. Our dedicated, all volunteer Cancer Run Board is comprised of the» Fremont HOG Chapter and Friends». This hard working group takes all aspects of coordinating a weekend-long event full of concerts, scenic rides, field games, the World Famous HOG Auction, and the list goes on. Along with hundreds of volunteers and thousands of participants that also believe in our cause, we ensure that when we are all done, we will have made a difference in the lives of many on the Lakeshore who are fighting cancer. Every household has been touched by cancer in some way. It is our goal to help patients in their fight against this disease by providing assistance, education, and cutting edge treatment at the Johnson Family Center for Cancer Care at Mercy Health Partners in Muskegon. The Sandy Corley Memorial Run continues to grow bigger each year. As of August 2012, our cumulative donation total has reached $1,425,242.83! Fievent.com | Contact | Privacy | Terms
