The 2013 Dreams for Kids motorcycle ride was held last Saturday in Perham, raising enough money to grant the wishes of four local children. Pictured here is one of them, Paige Johnson, second from left, with her mother Chasity, father Rick and sister Mylinda. Paige was diagnosed with cancer almost two years ago, but will be celebrating one year cancer-free this Saturday -- her 10th birthday. The Johnsons took a trip to Walt Disney World with the money raised through the ride.
