Dennis Banks coming to cleveland etc. Sept. 18-22 - Ride to Reverse Diabetes Native community cross country-we need your help

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Fri, 09/12/2014 - 02:24.

I am hosting Dennis Banks and his Ride to Reverse Diabetes as it makes its way cross-country to NE Ohio. He will be here from September 18-22. I have him scheduled to appear at a couple of events on Saturday the 20th , the purpose of which is to gather information about type 1 and 2 diabetes in the Native community (more info on the website).
I am in need of a few volunteers to help me with logistics around this ride. (My understanding is that there will be about 20 motorcyclists accompanying him, all of whom are camping in my backyard.)
I would also like to host a dinner Sunday evening (the 21st), and need help with making (and following with) these arrangements.

Let me know if you can help out in any way.
