Revving and Riding: Local bikers raise money for cancer
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - A group of motorcyclists wanted to support a family in need… and have a little fun Saturday.
Over a dozen bikers, mostly decked out in Harley Davidson gear, revved their engines and went for a “Dart Run” to support a family suffering from cancer.
The Event, called “Cancer Sucks Dart Run,” started at the Roundup Steakhouse and the group made their way around town shooting darts and riding bikes.
The President of North Star Alaskan Bikers for Awareness, Training and Education, Kent Slavik says he’s happy to help those in need.
“In life all of us get thrown curve balls and life isn’t always fair. For me it’s red lights -- I have problems with red lights! But for other people it’s a lot more serious,” Slavik explained. “We are holding a run today so we can raise money for a family that is in need of some financial support for their child that is in this terrible disease of cancer.”
