Motorcycle Run Rally

Posted: Updated:

Members of the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch spent their Saturday doing something not many teenagers get to do - riding motorcycles for hundreds of miles to raise money.

NYMPUM is a national program that teaches youth to operate a standard Honda mini-bike.

Riding time is earned by taking classes, and setting and achieving goals that relate to self-improvement.

Today, 50 riders started their trek at Pure Honda in Minot, made their way to the Bottineau area, and then back home for supper together.

The program director says this is a fun way to teach hard work and even certain skill sets.

(Todd Fjeldahl, NYPUM Program Director) "It builds self-confidence - learning to operate a bike the correct way, you know, takes a lot of work. And on the fflip side they have to earn it. It's not a thing they get to do just to have fun. They earn the right to use the bikes so they build self-esteem and confidence, as well as improve on the areas they're working on."

Money made at the fundraiser today will all go back to the NYPUM program in Minot.
