Motorcycles, t-shirts and trophies are coming to the Fowlerville Walmart parking lot this Saturday, June 18, 2016, located at 970 Gehringer Dr, Fowlerville, Mich. 

For the past two and a half months, Walmart employee and event coordinator Charles Borroughs has been planning the first ever Fowlerville Walmart Bike Show to benefit sick children in Michigan. 

"People that ride bikes are very charitable, they like to help out for children," Borroughs said. He is a motorcycle owner himself and wanted to bring the biker community together for a cause. 

"I'm not looking for that $50,000 thing that you don't ride, I'm looking for the one the person rides all the time for fun, recreation or for work," Borroughs said. 
 
Bikers can register for the show Saturday morning from 8-9a.m. and the show will run from 9a.m.-3p.m.
 
Registration costs $10 and 100% proceeds will go to The Rainbow Connection which is a non-profit organization that provides fun experiences for children with life-threatening illnesses in Michigan.
 
Upon registration, participants will receive a t-shirt, shown above.
 
There will also be three trophies for first, second and third place and one for Best of Show, according to Borroughs.  
 
"Every body is welcome to come and see the show,  but what we are trying to do is grant wishes to sick children," Borroughs said.
