The 2016 Motor-Icicle Run takes place in Orland Saturday, January 16th, to raise money for a Memorial to Orland's Patriots.

The event kicks off with a pancake breakfast open to anyone for just $6, starting at 9 a.m. at the Orland Fire Department. The Motorcycle ride starts at 11 a.m. and will travel through Glenn County, before finishing back at the Fire Department with a Chili Feed.

Organizers say 68 Orland heroes have died in military service since the city was incorporated in 1909. There is already a design for the memorial, and half of the estimated $60 thousand dollar cost has already been raised. It's hoped the memorial will be located in Orland's Memorial Park.

The cost to take part in the ride itself is $20, and $5 per passenger. Participants are also encouraged to collect pledges to help build the memorial.

The event takes place rain or shine.
