On Saturday, June 22, 500 Murfreesboro, Tenn., community members will join friends, family and neighbors of Sheri and Rich Guider to participate in the family-friendly celebration “RideJonahRide: Rock the Red,” at Hop Springs Beer Park to benefit the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA).
Sheri and Rich Guider launched the event in 2016 in memory of their son, Jonah, who passed away from pulmonary hypertension (PH) at the age of 10 in 2015 – three months before his 11th birthday. Since his passing, the Guiders have committed to spreading awareness about PH and raising funds for PHA.
“Jonah’s pulmonary hypertension was hidden behind countless smiles, playful mischief and unyielding affection. He spent his days doing what most 10-year old’s do—play,” say the Guiders. “We can’t introduce anyone to Jonah any longer, but he is still touching countless lives today.”
“RideJonahRide: Rock the Red” participants are encouraged to wear red, Jonah’s favorite color, as they enjoy the on-site entertainment and music, savory BBQ and some of Jonah’s favorites: root beer floats and cartoon entertainment.
Attendees can choose to participate in the motorcycle ride through middle Tennessee or purchase a ticket for the evening celebration at Hop Springs Beer Park only. To purchase a ticket or view more details, visit PHAevents.org/RideJonahRide.
