Oregon High School grad hosts Cruizin' for a Cure Car & Bike Show

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- An Oregon High School grad hosts a car and bike show to raise money to find a cure for two digestive diseases.

The third annual "Cruizin for a Cure Car & Bike Show" will benefit the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. It's on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. outside Prairie View Elementary School at 300 Soden Drive. The rain date will be on Sunday.

The show's founder and organizer is 21-year-old Justin Frederick, a 2009 Oregon High School graduate and car enthusiast who eight years ago was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a painful, chronic disorder of the large intestine.

Registration is $10 per car for contestants and it opens at 9:00 a.m. Refreshments will be sold at the event.

Frederick plans to donate the money raised to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America during the "Take Steps for Crohn's and Colitis" Walk in Madison on June 8 at Warner Park.
