The third annual Bobby Estus Memorial Bike Ride will be May 27.

This year, the ride will begin at 9:30 a.m. in Paris Park and participants will ride or walk to Veterans Memorial Lake in Arkansas City.

Strollers and wagons are welcome, but organizers ask that no pets be in attendance.

The Bobby Estus Memorial Bike Ride is a fundraiser that began in 2015, with the goal of providing bicycles to children in the community who have no means to pay for a bike of their own.

Last year, the Bobby Estus Memorial Bike Ride was able to raise funds to buy 42 bikes and donate them to Angels in the Attic for Christmas presents for Arkansas City kids.

Sponsors who donate more than $100 this year will be featured on event T-shirts, which are free to those who pre-register.

Burgers, chips, cookies and water will be provided at Veterans Memorial Lake after the ride.

Those interested in registering or becoming a sponsor may call (620) 442-8255 or (620) 441-7110, or stop by 526 N. Summit St.
