The funds raised from our benefit ride go directly to the beneficiaries. This year we have added a second beneficiary to our cause. The two beneficiaires are: Dave Gustafson and Ken Smith. Please read their information below and come support our brothers and their families in need.
Ken Smith, age 67, has lived in Coleraine, Minnesota, most of his life. He and his wife Trika have two adult children and five grandchildren.
Ken has served on the Coleraine City Council for 26 years, including 10 years as mayor. He also served on the Coleraine Fire Department for 24 years. Ken loves music, the Vikings and the Twins. Ken and Trika have visited 20 of the 30 MLB stadiums, while also enjoying each of their cities. They plan to see the rest of the stadiums in the next few years.
Ken developed kidney cancer in 2016, which has since metastasized to his lungs and spine.
