Couple Honors Daughter with 'Cruisin for St. Jude'

In August of 2009, Jerry and Kristy Bridges lost their daughter, Mary Elizabeth, after a lifelong series of health battles that included cancer.

She was just 10 years old.

Now, they're giving back to the organization that helped them and their daughter, the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. They're calling the event "Cruisin for St. Jude."

At 11a.m., Saturday, they'll leave from the Macon Harley Davidson shop on Mercer University drive and end up at the Warner Robins Moose Lodge.

On display will be antique cars and motorcycles and there's BBQ for lunch. Whether you have a motorcycle, antique car or tricycle, the Bridges say come out and support.

"It's very important for us to do this because St. Jude gave us ten good years with Mary. And we wanna give other kids a chance you know at what she had to be happy to. to try and live a longer life than what other expected," said Kristy.

Donations for the ride start at $25, that includes the meal.

For more details about tomorrow's event you can check it out on  under the community calendar.
