TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A group of community members hope to raise awareness by giving back.
The rain didn’t stop the more than 100 bikers who participated in the Ride for Autism Saturday morning.
Riders gathered at Show-Me’s Restaurant in Terre Haute. From there they rode more than 100 miles to Northstar, Ind.
All proceeds and donations will go towards autism research.
This is the first time for the event but organizers hope the ride will take place every year and continue to expand.
“There’s so many people that know somebody or have someone that they are close to that is autistic, and we have so many people who have came and said we’re not riding but we want to donate, and we appreciate all of that,” explained Tausha Beck, event organizer – Ride for Autism.
While there is not a final count just yet the goal was to raise $5,000 to benefit those with autism.
