Worthington & Caron is thrilled to announce that it will again serve as lead sponsor for the 3rd Annual “The Greatest Escape” Motorcycle Ride for Mesothelioma Research in Los Angeles. “The Greatest Escape” is inspired by actor and motorcycle enthusiast Steve McQueen, whose vibrant life was cut short by mesothelioma at the age of 50 on November 7, 1980. The Greatest Escape is hosted by The Pacific Mesothelioma Center (PMC) at the Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute (PHLBI), with 100% of proceeds supporting PMC’s much-needed research for a cure for mesothelioma.
“The Greatest Escape” will take place on Sunday July 26, 2015. Sign-in and day of event registration begins at 8:30 AM, with the ride taking off at 10 AM from Glendale Harley-Davidson located at 3717 San Fernando Rd in Glendale. Riders will cruise along scenic Angeles Crest Highway led by this year’s celebrity grand marshal, actor/model and motorcycle enthusiast Fabio Lanzoni. The ride will finish at the legendary mountain-top roadhouse, Newcomb’s Ranch.
Upon arriving at Newcomb’s ranch, riders can kick back in the shade of the surrounding redwoods, enjoy a barbeque lunch, quench their thirst with a cold craft beer and be entertained by the rock band Cherry & the Bulldogs. There will also be raffle prizes and a live auction. K-Earth 101’s Morning Show host, Gary Bryan, will MC the event.
Registration for riders is $40, and $30 for passengers who pre-register by July 25, 2015. Day of event registration is $45 for riders and $35 for passengers. Participants will receive a commemorative pin, bandanna, and lunch. Non-riders are also welcome to join for $25 which covers lunch, entertainment, and parking.
