 One of the most inspirational events of every Thunder Beach® Rally is the gathering of hundreds of riders (as well as thousands of onlookers) for the Sgt. Kevin Kight Memorial Bike Parade.  This event has special significance to the Panama City Beach community as it serves to memorialize a fallen local hero and provides assistance to children and families in need.  

The memorial bike parade was established in 2005 to honor local fallen police officer Sergeant Kevin Kight.  Sergeant Kight had served with the Panama City Beach Police Department for 6 years and had previously served with the German Township, Ohio, Police Department for 4 years.  Sergeant Kight was killed on March 27, 2005 in the line of duty during a routine traffic stop.

A small stone plaque now stands at the spot where Sgt. Kight was killed.  Our hearts go out to his beloved family and we are proud to be able to honor him with a parade that allows us to show our thanks and respect to someone that gave the ultimate sacrifice in protecting our community.

Participants and onlookers are urged to make cash donations as well as canned goods and nonperishables that are given to local food banks.
