Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company of Milwaukee organized the historic ride, the largest women's ride in the company's 105-year history. In addition to providing recognition to women motorcycle riders, the event will enables MDA to send more youngsters to camp, where they'll enjoy a week of accessible activities such as swimming, horseback riding, fishing and arts and crafts.

"What a fantastic accomplishment for all these women," enthused MDA National Chairman and Telethon star Jerry Lewis. "Their remarkable efforts will provide 'the best week of the year' to hundreds of my kids."

Karen Davidson, great-granddaughter of one of Harley-Davidson's founders, William A. Davidson, led the group, including the six winners of Harley- Davidson's "Get Down to Daytona" contest. They left Atlanta March 1, and were joined by the rest of the riders for the last 10 miles of the approximately 500-mile trek, which ended at Ocean Center.

"I'm honored to have been a part of this historic ride," Davidson said. "To travel with these women and see the country from a bike -- and know we're helping kids with muscle diseases -- it's a special thing."

Three women received special recognition as the top fundraisers for the event: Joanne Mold of Forest Hill, Md., ($3,055 raised), Dee Roberts of Bernville, Pa., ($2,717) and Lynne Cone of Houston ($2,715).
