The Boo Benefit - A Ride For Kids Who Are Burn Victims
The Boo Run is a motorcycle rally in Jefferson, Texas to benefit child burn victims. Over 30,000 bikers come to town, and the benefit raises a lot of money - around $200,000 in 2008 - for an incredible kids' cause: the Percy R. Johnson Burn Foundation. Austin Street is closed off to auto traffic that weekend, and becomes a giant parking lot for motorcycles as far as the eye can see. There are vendor booths and food stands everywhere, and it's a lot of fun. 0To learn more about the Boo Run, visit their website, and be sure to watch the videos - they're incredible: www.boobenefit.org.
