MDA Tub Run draws bikers, crowds for charity


JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Today, hundreds of bikers hit the pavement for a good cause.

More than 1,100 bikers came out for the Muscular Dystrophy Association's 19th annual Tub Run.

"The best part about it is seeing it all come together and the smiles on everybody's face and then seeing the kids at summer camp in the wheelchairs having fun," said Tub Run planning committee chairman, Dave Alwin.

They rode from Janesville, to Albany and then to Edgerton, to raise money for the charity. 

The Tub Run has brought in nearly $2 million for the MDA since it started in 1985.
