It's time once again to rev your engines to help out a popular children's park.The 7th annual Justin's Run to benefit Storybook Island takes off from the park this Sunday afternoon.The motorcycle ride through the Hills is named for Justin Erickson, a 12-year-old with autism. Justin's mom Vicki says over the past few years Justin's Run has raised close to four-thousand dollars for Storybook Island.She says, "Storybook Island has always been our second home in the summer. We're here almost every weekend, and it's one of Justin's favorite places to come ... It's just our way of paying it back to the community."Vicki says Justin's Run grows every year.She says seven years ago they had just 14 motorcycles; last year they had more than 70.Registration for Justin's Run is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday at Storybook Island.The cost is $10 per rider and $5 per passenger.The ride begins at 1 and takes riders from Storybook Island to Boondocks and on to Pactola, then to Hill City, through Keystone and ends at the Gaslight restaurant in Rockerville.
