The Kayla Gilbert Foundation will host their fourth annual Motorcycle Run this Sunday, Aug. 4, at Dan’s Place at 880 Victory Highway in West Greenwich. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and kick stands up at 11 a.m.
There is a $25 donation per participant. The event also includes a steak fry, live music from Zink Alloy and raffles.
All proceeds from the event will go to The Kayla Gilbert Foundation to provide treatment and medications for 26-year-old Warwick native Kayla Gilbert, who currently resides in North Carolina, recovering from a double living donor transplant she received in January. Gilbert is being treated and monitored at Duke University Medical Center.
“Even if you don’t have a motorcycle, come and enjoy the fun,” said Karen Boschetti, Gilbert’s mother.
A rain date is scheduled for Aug. 11.
Gilbert was the subject of a May 14 Beacon article entitled “Resident needs support after life-saving lung transplant.”
