Raquel Rose Rankin was in a car accident on 5-12-01 and died on 5-14-01. She was air lifted to Cardinal Glennon Hospital where she was taken care of until she died. The staff at Cardinal Glennon was amazing. Raquel was in ICU and they allowed her to have many visitors during her stay. They allowed friends and family to spend the night at the hospital and made accommodations above and beyond the call of duty. The hospitality that they showed to us all was God given and we could not have asked for Raquel to be in a better hospital. Raquel’s birthday was on August 19th so her father decided he would like to do a fundraiser to raise money for Cardinal Glennon Hospital and for Have Bible Will Travel, which was the church Raquel attended. That is how the Ride for Rocky got started in 2001. In 2010 we raised $48,000 our new goal is to raise at least $60,000. Please help us reach our goal this year. This ride is for anyone who loves kids or just loves to ride. All makes, models, cars, bikes, etc. are welcomed and encouraged!
