It may be hot outside, but it wasn't warm enough to keep bikers out of a 92 mile ride Saturday. It's purpose was to get felons off the streets and behind bars. The first bike drove off at 9am from Eddie Hills and finished at Texas Roadhouse. It was $30 to ride and all of the proceeds from the men and women who participated, which was more than 100, will go towards Crime Stoppers.
"One-hundred percent of our proceeds that we make off of the fun run goes directly into paying our informants for information that leads to the arrest of anyone with a felony warrant,"said Crime Stoppers Coordinator Robert Woodruff. On average the event raises more than $5,000. This is one of their two major fundraiser's, the other is in the fall and it's a golf tournament.
