ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dozens of bikers revved their engines to help save lives.

Men and women from the Remaining Few Motorcycle Club hopped on their motorcycles for a poker run to raise money to find a cure for Alzheimer's Disease.

More than 100 bikers started at Master Body Works in Lee County rode around town to places that sponsored the event,  and finished up at the Crow Bar Grill.

The organizer says having family with the disease makes him want to continue raising funds for the cause.

"I had an uncle that did and we have people in our community suffer with this all the time and it's something we feel there is a need to help with," said Poker Run President, James Gambrell.

This was the 2nd Annual poker run. Last year the group raised $3,500. This year bikers hope to raise even more. All proceeds go towards the Alzheimer's Association.
