Ride for the Cure

Motorcycle engines were roaring all through town, as many bikers took to the streets to to show their support for breast cancer.

Event supporter Mike Dougan says, "it's a really neat deal and i know the ride of the cure, they support family and breast cancer survivors, they don't suport causes."

Bikers from all over our area revved up their engines, to help three ladies with breast cancer.

The Vice President of Ride for the Cure says the money earned will go toward wigs, 
medication, help with insurance or anything these woman might need to help them with their fight.

The event have been all about the motorcycles, but a pink car was front and center.

Clark's Auto Salvage donated the vehicle, and Ride for the Cure gave it a bit of a makeover.

Vice President of Ride for the Cure Glyndia Keiser says, "so we want all of our breast cancer survivors or if you have somebody that you'd like to sign the car in memory of and all of our supporters and people that donate to us to come out and sign our car."

She tells us they have a goal this year of raising $20,000 for the three breast cancer survivors, and with the community support, she says it's very possible.

There was also a dunking booth, a velcro wall and several bands.

Dougan tells us he's been supporting this Ride for the Cure event since day one.

He says, "it's just an unbelievable cause.  People that don't know about it, they're missing out."

Keiser agrees, saying "raising money and helping them, it sort of lightens their burden that they have."
Nearly 40 volunteers work together to make the event happen..

100% of the money raised will go toward breast cancer survivors.

Ride for a Cure hosts events throughout the year to raise money for a cure for breast cancer.
