HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

DREAM of Hattiesburg, a local non-profit organization, hosted the 2nd annual “Hattie Hundred” bike ride Saturday in downtown.

This event was organized in an effort to promote a healthy and positive change by reducing and preventing the abuse of alcohol and other drugs in children and youth in south Mississippi.

Riders of all ages participated in a 100-mile, 88-mile, 65-mile, 30-mile, and a 5-mile family ride courses along the Long Leaf Trace as well as a 100-mile off trace ride. The bike ride began at the Hattiesburg Train Depot and went through the Long Leaf Trace along portions of the Mississippi Central Railroad Line.

Participants received medals, goodie bags, T-shirts and other prizes for completing the courses. There was also a drawing for door prizes and food given away.

Mayor Toby Barker was also in attendance as he wished the bikers good luck and thanked them for their participation. 

All proceeds from the event will go towards DREAM.
