ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some riders in Albany's motorcycle community spent their Saturday together to help a fellow rider.

Shannon Porter, a member of the Another Level Motorcycle Club, had a near fatal accident on May 8. 

Fellow members and those of surrounding motorcycle clubs came together to host a bike run to raise funds to help with Porter's medical bills. 

"This could happen to any of us any day and we have to support each other if we fall on hard times," said Organizer Reshunda Whitfield.

Porter is still recovering and said that he is grateful for the support he's received.
