This year’s Midwest Pride in Your Ride raised over 60-thousand dollars.
The annual truck and tractor show was held earlier this month at Tri-State Raceway in Earlville, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. Worthington semi driver Eldon Jaeger, who has organized the show since its start in 2011, says it takes a team of people to pull off this fundraiser.
Midwest Pride in Your Ride and its raffles have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the American Cancer Society over the past six years, making it the largest fundraiser for the Dyersville Area Relay for Life. Jaeger says they’ll keep the show going each year until a cure for cancer is found.
