Bikers ride for good cause

August 26, 2006

Albany -- The local Harley Davidson Owner's group is revved up today to raise money for charity.

Bike by bike they left the Flint River Harley Davidson at 9 am this morning, on the way to Panama City Beach Florida.

Along the way the more than 250 bikers are raising money to help people with muscular dystrophy. People affected by the disease are thankful the bikers volunteer their time for the event.

"It means a lot that they help raise money for MDA because if it wasn't for MDA and a lot of the other organizations, he wouldn't be able to do what he does today," said mother of son with muscular dystrophy Heather Blanchard.

"This gentleman right over here, if you'll get a shot of him is the prime reason we're all doing it," said biker Tommy Norman.

More than 250 bikers from across South Georgia will end up at Panama City Beach with the money they've raised for the MDA.
