Americus-- The rainy weather didn't stop some bikers in Americus from riding for a good cause. This morning, the riders suited up for Sumter Regional Hospital's Ride For Diabetes.

November is National Diabetes month and the event was organized to raise awareness about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

"Many people have diseases that they don't talk about and but we want people to talk about this one," says registered nurse, Lila Sexton.

More than 18 million people have diabetes and more than 5 million don't know they suffer from the disease.
