Annual Freedom Run returns to Marseilles

Posted by wlpo on June 19, 2009

The city of Marseilles will swell to upwards of 20,000 people tomorrow.
The 7th annual Illinois Motorcycle Freedem Run is Saturday. Thousands of bikers will gather at the Grundy County Fairgrounds in Morris before heading out to Marseilles to take in a 1pm memorial service. The service is to add names to the Middle East Conflicts Memorial Wall of soldiers killed in battle this past year.
Co-organizer Hank Bostelman says they’re adding around 400 names this year. It’s the lowest amount since they started adding names to the wall.
