“Ride for Wishes” is a annual event that has been created by friends and family of Chuck Worden who passed away on July 14th, 2004.
Chuck was many things to many people. Around the midwest, he was most known for his singing. As the lead singer of a Southern Rock band named “Chain Lightning”, his deep growling voice belted out the lyrics of well known artists such as ZZ Top and Lynard Skynard as well as many songs written by Chuck and other members of the band.
As exciting as this is, to those who knew him well, Chuck was so much more. Chuck was a dad, a fiancé a confidant and a friend. And he did it all with the flare of a Southern Gentleman.
This event has been created by the friends and family of Chuck Worden as a tribute to the memory of a man who meant so much to us. All the work is being performed by volunteers. Most expenses are being covered by donations. Net proceeds will go to a charity to which Chuck gave so much. Make-A-Wish® Minnesot
