This Saturday, August 26th, KMOC/Wichita Falls, TX Team KMOC will ride in the 42nd Hotter’n Hell Hundred (HHH).

KMOC GM Keith Sanderson says, “For 15 years now we’ve recruited riders and then launch the Team KMOC Challenge, encouraging  KMOC listeners to make a per-mile pledge or one time donation. Each team member solicits gifts as well. This year we have assembled our largest team ever…62 riders hoping to ride a combined 2500 miles.  Our goal is $35,000.  It’s been a great way to help with our summer slump in giving.  It’s now our 2nd largest fund raiser each year!”
With 10,000 to 15,000 riders participating each year, The HHH has become the biggest event in Wichita Falls and the surrounding Texoma community.
