Motorcyclists rev engines to raise money for Georgia youth

Posted: Updated:

The Chatham County Sheriff's Office revved up their engines for the 14th Annual Poker Run on Sunday.

Each year, between 350 and 700 motorcyclists take part in the event to raise money for youth in Georgia.

The money provides school supplies, a summer vacation trip, Christmas gifts, and much more. Colonel John Wilcher says the Sheriff's Office really appreciates all the community support, which helps young people who have done nothing wrong.

"Well, it is important because these kids in these youth homes are not kids that have been in any trouble. They are kids whose parents have been in jail, or they are drug addicts or something, and they just disregard their children. The Georgia Sheriff's Youth Home picks them up and helps them become productive citizens in the world," said John T. Wilcher, Chatham County Sheriff's Office.

More than 350 bikers signed up to ride in Sunday's poker run.
