Rockford Rally Biggest Ever
WALKER — The 2007 Rally for Hope and Hunger raised a record amount of money for two charitable organizations and was the largest rally ever held.
More than 700 attended a day of music and food at the DeltaPlex, and over 500 cyclists rode in the rally.
The annual event is sponsored by Rockford Construction Co.
This year’s rally raised $109,796. The event’s proceeds went to God’s Kitchen, a food pantry in the Heartside district, and to the Van Andel Institute of Research and Education.
