16th Annual benefit ride through the KC Northland is expected to bring 600 motorcycles to Immacolata Manor on Sunday, June 30. Janey’s Ride (Over the Next Hill for Immacolata Manor) has been billed as “the best ride in the Northland.” Liberty, MO, May 3, 2013: On June 30, 2013, Immacolata Manor will host the 16th Annual Janey’s Ride, a benefit motorcycle event to support persons with developmental disabilities.

Registration opens at 8:00 a.m. with the ride start at 11:00 a.m. All registered riders enjoy a dice roll, silent auction, 50/50, packets filled with valuable coupons and offers from ride sponsors. Those who arrive hungry can partake of a benefit breakfast of hardy biscuits and gravy prepared and served by the Gladstone International Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF).

The event will kick off with live music and bar and then through reservation only, participants will be invited to take a paranormal tour of the grounds. Tickets for the paranormal investigation are $50/person. In addition to the above, Janey's Ride will again this year offer the opportunity for riders to enter a free bike show, hosted by the Gladstone IOOF. Class categories include Touring, Custom, Cruiser, and Sport. Two additional trophies are awarded for Best of Show and Resident's Choice (as chosen by the residents of Immacolata Manor). All Bike Show winners will be announced and trophies distributed at the ride's finish. These custom made trophies are a one of a kind treasure. At the ride's finish, riders enjoy a "biker night" environment at the Manor with music by the band, Rocker Lips, as the silent auction concludes and prizes are awarded. Janey’s Ride is a group ride, which means everyone starts and finishes together. To ensure a smooth and safe ride, a crew of experienced Road Captains control the ride, while trained EMT's and a Chase Vehicle (sponsored by Liberty Cycle Center) are available for those unexpected dilemmas. Volunteers make a huge impact on the ride's success. Individuals and groups interested in volunteering should visit http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0448ADAB2B0-janeys2, or contact Immacolata Manor's Director or Development, Stacie Bratcher at sbratcher@imanor.org. or 816-781-4332 x226. The ride's success is attributed to the country's biggest-hearted motorcycle riders, fabulous volunteers, and very generous sponsors/donors. Efforts from generous community partners truly make a difference toward ensuring the success of this event, as does help from a swarm of community volunteers. Though Janey’s Ride means a day of camaraderie with fellow bikers and a chance to enjoy the freedom of the road, for those who work, volunteer and live at Immacolata Manor this ride means so much more. Support of Janey’s Ride is needed to guarantee that the programs at Immacolata Manor continue to provide personalized support to people with developmental disabilities. During the past fifteen years, more than 6,000 riders have participated in Janey's Ride, raising more than $217,000. Proceeds from this year’s ride will be used to support My Day on Mill Street, a new building which will make the Manor’s day program accessible to many more adult participants.
As a result of the support and funds received through this annual motorcycle ride, the residents of the Manor enjoy full, active lives. As members of a close-knit community, they shop, go out to dinner and movies, attend church, and take part in other events and social activities on a regular basis. The residents also have a strong sense of community and strong friendships fostered by sharing experiences over time.
The Immacolata Manor residential program has a current residential capacity of 36 consumers and is committed to developing program ideas that will continue to support our aging population. The My Day community integration program is designed to serve 30 adult participants during a six-hour day.

Located in Liberty, Missouri, on 37 acres, Immacolata Manor is a not-for-profit agency, under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors and a full-time professional staff, providing habilitative services for persons with developmental disabilities. Immacolata Manor focuses on the values and principles of community membership, self-determination, human rights, and basic needs, so that each individual will be supported and empowered to achieve their highest potential and to live their lives with dignity and respect.
