Jeepin’ the Coast

Cruisers aren’t the only ones taking advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend. Jeepers wanted in on the fun too.

Jeepin’ the coast had hundreds of jeep lovers riding together today, from Bay St. Louis to Gulfport. But it wasn’t all fun and games. The ride takes places every year to raise money for breast cancer awareness, and the 2016 turnout was the biggest yet, exceeding the expectations of Jennifer Moran, the woman who got Jeepin’ the coast off of the ground.

Jennifer Moran tells News 25’s, “Today I was told that a friend of mine stopped counting at 300, which is three times what it was last year. Last year was our first year to do our Sunday fun-day ride, so basically Sunday is our fun-day ride and Friday is our big ride. We had around 400 jeeps last year, so we’re looking to double or triple that this year.”

Moran hopes Jeepin’ the coast will eventually become its own event. Alongside Cruisin’ and Scraping the Coast.
