Allie's Angels Set to Ride Again

A Port Crane woman is keeping the memory of her late daughter alive.

Melissa Kemmerer lost her daughter Allison to a domestic violence incident in Whitney Point in 2012. She is organizing the Third Annual Allie's Angel ride at Hickories Park in Owego. The event will take place Sunday from 8AM until 1PM. There will be raffles, food, a colorful 5-k run, a 25-mile bicycle ride, and 75-mile motorcycle ride.

"Bringing the community together to have a whole lot of people in place that are thinking about her on one day just really makes us feel a little bit better about everything. We like to be able to raise money to give back to local preschools," said Kemmerer.

The first two Allie's Angel rides raised an average of about $11,000. Last year's proceeds went to preschools in Whitney Point and Owego. For more on the event you can go to angelsforallie.org.
