Emotions are high at the Dreams for Kids Bike Run
Mark Schmidt ran a business with his brother, a Desert Storm veteran, when he decided to reenlist. Out of his brother's sacrifice came the Perham for Kids Bike Run.
"I felt that if he could do that, we could do something back here," Schmidt said. "I was having a beer, talking to my friends and thought we should really do something. Basically, it was a brainstorm."
From that brewed the idea of doing a motorcycle ride for the Make a Wish Foundation of Minnesota.
