The family of a severely ill child will benefit from the proceeds of a motorcycle run this Sunday beginning at Spartan Municipal Stadium in Portsmouth.
Six-year-old Katelynn suffers from a genetic disorder, but doctors are puzzled as to what that disorder is. She suffers from Chronic Lung Disease which requires a trachea and ventilator to help her breathe. She also suffers from kidney disease, which has caused her kidneys to shut down, meaning she has to undergo 10 hours of dialysis every night to keep her alive. Unfortunately, due to pre-existing conditions, Katelynn will not qualify for the transplant list, so a group of people concerned about her will hold a “Kindness for Katelynn,” motorcycle run Sunday.
Registration begins at 11 a.m., the ride starts at 1 p.m., and will last until 4 p.m. Motorcycle riders pay $10 to ride, and each can add a passenger for $5 extra. There will be door prizes along with split the pot, water, pop and snacks. All proceeds will benefit Katelynn to help with transportation, medical expenses and other care required.
