Motorcycle club raises money to help runaway teens

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany motorcycle club is raising money to support a non-profit organization that helps homeless and runaway teens.

The "One for All" motorcycle club met at Austin's Firegrill to kick off their first motorcycle run and charity auction to support "The Bridge," an organization that helps homeless and runaway teens. About 200 bikers participated in the 30 mile trip around Albany.  

"We chose the charity mainly because they don't get a lot of help," said Kevin Haase, One for All President. "They operate basically on one federal grant and locally there is the Exchange Club that helps them out financially."   

The ride wrapped at Bayou's Bar and Grill where organizers auctioned off an autographed guitar by Leesburg native Luke Bryan and several door prizes.
