Welcome to Ride The River 2010! As you know, every two years, the Central Illinois Green Club in conjunction with Kankakee Community College host a 50 mile tractor ride along the Kankakee and Iroquois River. “Ride the River” proceeds Benefit KCC scholarships for Ag/Hort students. So this is a very important event. Not only for us, and those who enjoy the ride, but for the KCC Ag/Hort Students as well. We were overjoyed to have increased participation this year for the ride. Over 130 tractor drivers were registered to attend the drive. We also were able to increase our sponsorship as well!
