Louie Run celebrates 30 years of memories



Louie Run chairman Mike “Redbeard” Warren said he was pleased with the nice weather and large biker turnout, even though he realizes that some people come to remember the dead and others come to the run to party.

“I read 340 names today,” he said. “My voice is giving out. I know that there are 2,500 people who come when it is pouring rain, they come when it’s cold. They come no matter what because it means something to them. So we know some people come for the party and that’s OK because the Louie Run still holds so much meaning for so many people.”

Dorsey said the feeling of the first event still runs through the Louie Run three decades later.

“There is a camaraderie here that you don’t find everywhere,” she said. “This is group of people who have come a long way, but they still get looked over by society for a lot of reasons, no matter how much good they do in their communities. We are still working to fix that judgment.”
