Bikers help raise $100,000 for kids :1st:






Motorcyclists in Western North Carolina raised $100,000 at the Ride for Kids event Aug. 27.

Riders gathered before sunrise at Biltmore Square Mall for the 13th event. Area law enforcement escorted a five-mile column of motorcycles along the Blue Ridge Parkway to Lake Lure.

The Celebration of Life program featured 15 WNC brain tumor survivors.

The Ride for Kids proceeds help fund research to fight brain cancer cells in children.

The top individual fundraiser was Denise Mathers of Hendersonville, who brought $7,395. Members of GWRRA NC Chapter M2 of Hendersonville turned in $17,345 to make it the top club, and customers of MR Motorcycle of Asheville made it the top motorcycle business with $11,386 in donations.

The grand prize, a brand-new Honda motorcycle, went to Gary and Rhonda Burris of Asheville.
