Personal Statement:
My friends and I have attended this event since 1982 & we have a blast every year. The Chemistry of the People, Motorcycles, and Perfect Location make the True Grits 50cc Fun Run a never to be missed Event. The Fun Run family spans from coast to coast with entrants driving over 3000 miles to attend. Every Rider gets a Trophy Plaque which applies to your finish position. Event Hats and Shirts are also available. Look forward to seeing You at the next Event.

The volunteer fire department we support is the Union County volunteer fire department located in Suches, Georgia. This fire department operates a rescue service and is motorcycle friendly. Our annual event has been one of their largest annual fundraisering events. We do not mention the fire department in our flyer for several reasons mostly the liability of using their name on a motorcycle event. Our "official procedure" is to participate in a cookie sale and we buy the first cookie for about $2000 - $3000 then fun runners and others donate generously for each cookie purchase. The fire department has a parade to honor our riders just prior to the event.

We make the check payable to the Union County fire department station #5 to make sure it stays with the Suches station. Further information you can contact the True Grits promoter, Ben Cheatwood @ 770-329-3259
