September is childhood cancer awareness month and Jay's Hope, an organization that tries to improve the quality of life for children battling cancer, held a fundraiser Saturday.
They received a little help from nearly 100 motorcyclists in the Hawgs For Hope ride.
The riders circled once around the Harvey's in Gray before taking to the streets of Jones County. Each of these riders shelled out $20 to participate in this ride.
For the families who have children with pediatric cancer, they say it's wonderful to know these "hawgs" have their back.
"Just to see how the community cares about our children and how they come together to support the local people and our local organizations and help all the families that are struggling here, it's just amazing to see how many people care," says Trae Childs, whose son was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
This was all started by Cindy Arnold last year to help educate people about Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
The proceeds from the ride and auction will go to Jay's Hope.
