Welcome to Mother's for Daughters', Inc. We are a non-profit corporation working to find a cure for Breast and Ovarian Cancer. The seven directors, who form Mother's for Daughters', Inc. work solely on a volunteer basis with no monetary gains.
This event was founded in the fall of 2007 when Sharon Alves, a breast cancer survivor and Magnus Thorsson, (former owner of the Gray Ghost Inn) were discussing an event that would bring fun and caring motorcyclists together to help raise awareness and money for these two worthy causes. Thus Mother's for Daughters' was formed.
