“It is an honor to be able to host the Paint the ¼ Pink event here at MDIR as part of the WPGC Bike Fest and to see it con­tinue to grow each year,” MDIR di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing and pub­lic re­la­tions Rick Lind­ner said. “These ladies are a shin­ing ex­am­ple of what great peo­ple can ac­com­plish when they come to­gether for a com­mon goal and a great cause like Bik­ers Against Breast Can­cer. Thank you to ev­ery­one in­volved this year again for your amaz­ing and ef­forts.”
