Congrats to our riders who with their hard work finding and securing individual sponsors for rides, for their time preparing,  and for their physical endurance pushing it to the limits during their ride, often with a smile on their face. It was a day packed with fun and good spirits and we appreciate the good nature of our riders and team captains.  At one point during the event a rider wore a luau themed gorilla suit and stole the show. Fun times!

We are fortunate to live in a community that cares about the lives of first responders within Kootenai County. We are equally grateful to the local businesses who support the community that they do business within. This is true of Gyro Shack, Coeur D’Alene who recently raised and contributed $533 to Kootenai County Police & Fire Memorial Foundation during their 1 year anniversary celebration.

From September 17-23, 2018, Gyro Shack pledged to donate 10% of their sales resulting in a $533 contribution for Memorial Foundation. 


Many thanks to the staff and management during their busy week and to all who came out to enjoy their meal at Gyro Shack!
