Join us for a full day of fun beginning with laps on the track at Thompson Speedway, a 90-minute motorcycle and car cruise around the beautiful northeast corner, followed by a delicious BBQ lunch and entertainment at the Black Dog Bar & Grille! This event is organized by the Cruisin' for Cancer Care committee and draws hundreds of motorcyclists and classic car enthusiasts each year, many of whom ride in honor of a cancer survivor or in memory of a loved one. To date Cruisin' for Cancer Care has contributed over $180,000 to the Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund of DKH.
