PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - More than 100 motorcycles participated in this year's 'Warren Thomas Prater Memorial Ride' in Pike County on Sunday.
This was the sixth year for the memorial ride. After the ride, participants enjoyed a cookout, door prizes, and live music.
The event is particularly special for one event organizer, Dottie Prater, a cancer survivor herself.
Prater explains the event, "This is in conjunciton with TECO Coal and their relay for life and for the last six years they've done it in memory of my son, Warren Thomas Prater, whom we lost to cancer in 2008."
Organizers say they had participants from surrounding counties as well as from West Virginia and Virginia.
All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.
