Downtown Beloit was a stop on the route for the 18th Annual MDA Tub Run in 2012. The Tub Run started in June 1995 for the first time with about 200 riders. They raised $17,000 that year for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Since that first year, the South Central Wisconsin-Janesville Chapter has donated more than 1.4 million dollars to MDA. The Tub Run is second in the nation for donations to MDA in the Harley Davidson family.
