Next Spring Run on April 17, 2020

Ruth Evelyn likes to be called RE.  She is a bundle of energy with an enchanting smile.  RE loves roller coasters, dancing, gymnastics, Disney princesses and coloring.  She likes to play in her neighborhood park; slides are her favorite.


RE had a dream to ride a bicycle like any other child, even though she was born without arms.  RE’s mom, Karlyn Pranke, is a firm believer that anything is possible for her daughter.  RE has been beating the odds since her birth.  She makes iPda videos, feeds herself, and creates artwork using her feet.


To make the dream a reality, Karlyn turned to the staff at Gillette Children’s Specialty Health Care, where RE has received care since she was born.  The result is a custom-made device that rests against RE’s shoulders and connects to her bicycle’s handlebars.  She can now steer safely and confidently.


Mission accomplished.

About The Flood Run®


The Flood Run® has a history of giving. In 1965, 12 motorcycle riders rode 90 miles to Winona, MN to help sandbag during the 1965 Flood. 


Most of the original 12 spent the next several years in Vietnam, but all were back home by 1970.  They decided to carry on the tradition. Jim Noteboom named the ride The Flood Run®. As the years went by, a fall Flood Run® was added to have twice as much fun.


Over the years, the Flood Run® motorcycle run/ride has grown and gone through many changes. It is one of the oldest and largest runs in America.

The original run went down Minnesota highway 61 to Winona. Over the years, some riders began riding down Wisconsin 35. Now the run is a loop running down both the Minnesota and Wisconsin sides of the river. 


At Highway 10, riders can go left into Prescott, or right to Highway 61 and down the nostalgic Minnesota side. Riders can cross the Mississippi in Prescott, Red Wing, Wabasha, or Winona. Cross the river where ever you like, jump in where ever you like, or do the full Gold Pin Tour.  Just make sure to purchase a Flood Run wristband to show your support for the Children's Hospital.

The Flood Run® is run by dozens of volunteers.  Their passion for children and generous giving of their time is what permits this epic event to happen each spring and fall.  Please extend a sincere “thank you” to those you run across that make your day on the Flood Run® a great day.


Thank you.
