Bikers gather at Illinois Love's to support police memorial park

Posted July 22, 2015

If you happened to be anywhere near the Chicagoland area and Springfield, Illinois, this weekend, you might have seen quite the large motorcycle rally. It was for a terrific cause, and they made a stop at Love's 292 in Dwight, Illinois.

Hundreds of cars and motorcycles headed for the Illinois state Capitol on July 18 to raise funds for a memorial to fallen first responders, the Illinois State Police Memorial Park. Along the way, riders stopped in Downers Grove, Dwight, Carlinville, O'Fallon and Bloomington.

According to its website, the Illinois State Police Memorial Park is an "everlasting reminder of the sacrifices made by the brave men and women of the Illinois State Police."

Here are a few photos of the event we snapped when participants stopped at our store. We love to see your photos, too! Send your Love's pics to social@loves.com.
