In eight days bikers plan to travel from New Bern to Florida and it’s all for a good cause.
Viktor Quero and Doug Bacskay began their 750-mile bike ride Saturday. They are trying to raise money and aware for Thoughts Foundation and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Several bikers will joins them along the way. Organizers say already the bikers have raised $2,500 dollars, but by the end of the trip they hope to raise $10,000 dollars.
Bacskay says he became involved after his friend passed away from the disease. He says, “I'm doing it in her honor and if anyone gets inspired by what I do it’s through her inspiration that I do this. So It’s more about the people and it's more about everybody else than it is about her. I love the feeling I get from it, but I want to pass it on to somebody else."
