As part of “Come Back to Bethesda Day” this Saturday, a local couple put together a motorcycle ride to benefit the Children’s Inn at NIH, a charity that houses sick children and their families seeking treatment at NIH.

Lockheed Martin executive Adrienne Ward and her boyfriend wanted to put together a charity motorcycle ride to celebrate their love of bikes and a local organization doing good.

Ward’s experience in the federal contracting world brought her to the Children’s Inn, the group putting on the annual Come Back to Bethesda Day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., in conjunction with Taste of Bethesda.

“Both my boyfriend and I have kids and we couldn’t imagine what we’d do if we had to deal with the types of situations these kids and families are in,” Ward said.

All the proceeds from the event, there’s a $25 single rider registration fee and $40  two up fee, will go the Children’s Inn.

Ward promoted the event through local motorcycle shops and so far has received a decent response. About 25 riders are registered for the first annual event and she’s expecting more to show up on the day of.

The ride will start at 8 a.m. at the Rockville Regal Cinemas (199 E. Montgomery Ave., Rockville) and proceed to the Children’s Inn event near the Chevy Chase Acura dealer (7725 Wisconsin Ave.)
