Who We Are
Bikers for Beth is an annual motorcycle ride and poker run started in 2009 by Cass and Shelly Bressette. The first ride was organized to help the family of Beth Hemenway, who had lost her battle with colon cancer only weeks before the ride was to take place. Beth was a caring, compassionate woman, who even during her own illness worked hard to help raise money for the new radiation center at Central Vermont Hospital in Berlin, VT. It was decided on the day of the first ride that this would be an annual memorial event to honor Beth's giving spirit.
Our mission has two parts. The first being to raise money to help and individual who has suffered financial hardship because of cancer or some other life threatening illness. There is a new beneficiary chosen each year. The second part of our mission is to make this ride fun and safe for all involved. We strive to make our route appropriate for both the experienced rider as well as the beginner.
We hold our event every year on the third Sunday in May. We begin and end at Gusto's in Barre,VT. After the ride we have a barbecue, silent auction, raffles and live music to be enjoyed by ANYONE. You don't have to go on the ride to participate in the after-ride events. Click below to see the details about the current ride.
