The Tacoma Elks Lodge will be hosting a motorcycle run this weekend in honor of a Loomis armored car guard killed during a robbery in June.
Registration for the ride begins at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Elks Lodge, 1965 Union Ave. The first bikes will leave the lodge at 9:30 a.m.
The ride costs $30 for a bike and its rider and $10 for a passenger, according to a press release. The money from the event will go to the Lodge’s Veterans Committee and the Fort Lewis Warrior Transition Battalion.
Kurt Husted was gunned down inside the Lakewood Wal-Mart on June 2. He was killed, then robbed of the money bags he was carrying.
Four people were charged with aggravated first-degree murder in his death and one woman charged with rendering criminal assistance. Two of the five have pleaded guilty.
” We hope that some good will come from this tragedy,” an e-mail about the ride states. “Kurt was a motorcycle enthusiast who rode and raced motorcycles.”
