Motorcyclists gather and get ready for the Ride for Recovery.

The third annual motorcycle ride, Ride for Recovery, to raise money for Coweta F.O.R.C.E. will be held Sunday, Sept. 26.

Coweta F.O.R.C.E. provides support for recovery from addiction. Registration will begin at 12:45 p.m. at Change Church, 45 W. Broad St., Grantville and the ride will begin at 1:30 p.m. The ride will end at Coweta F.O.R.C.E., 48 E. Washington St., Newnan.

Registration for the ride is $15, with an additional $5 per passenger. On-site registration begins at 12:45 p.m., and the ride will begin at 1:30 p.m. Participants in the ride are invited to attend Change Church's 10:45 a.m. service before the ride.

All vehicles are welcome to participate.

Ride for Recovery was started by Wayne Stewart as a community project in Family Treatment Court.

He said one of the requirements of the program was to give back to the community. Because he was a member of the F.A.I.T.H. Riders at Change Church, Stewart said he decided to host a charity ride as his project.

After the initial ride, Stewart said he decided to continue the project and grew it into an annual community benefit ride.
