An upcoming motorcycle ride aims to help children whose parents have died in war.
The Freedom Seekers Association will host a 200-mile motorcycle ride across Colorado on July 7, said Jeff Holt, a member of the club. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund. The rest will be donated to children in the Pikes Peak region who have lost a father in combat.
The ride will stop at a handful of war memorials along the Front Range, as well as in the mountains just west of Colorado Springs, Holt said.
The cost to register for the race is $10 per motorcycle, and $15 for motorcycles carrying two people.
Registration will take place at 8 a.m. the day of the ride at the Retired Enlisted Association Building, 834 Emory Circle.
