About the event

The 1st Annual Wes Miller Memorial Christmas Party and Light Ride will take place on December 18, 2022. The event is in memory of Wes Miller who lost his battle this fall. In his memory, we are raising money for a local mental health non-profit called ReDiscovering You. ReDiscovering You works in the community to provide support to families who have lost loved ones to suicide, persons who are uninsured/underinsured seeking mental health and addiction recovery treatment, and other mental health causes in the community. The last few years have shown unprecedented need for their services and they are desperately in need of more funding to continue doing their great work. Please join us for this fun event to raise money for a great cause! Your generous support is not only greatly appreciated, but will truly change lives in our community.

Our event has too much fun planned for just one event, so there will be two!

The first event is the Christmas Party at Hanover Bikes and Fitting (10360 Mastin, Overland Park, KS 66212), and will be an open house format. Join us for all the fun and see the bike shop transformed into a Christmas Wonderland!
