DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — Dozens of bikers hit the road to support homeless veterans this weekend for the 8th annual Thunder Ride.
Organizers say, because of the VA Hospital, there are a lot of veterans in the area.
The ride spans a 120 mile route and includes a police escort. Each year, it’s held in honor of a veteran.
Organizers ay the group supplements the hospital. They say they don’t want the fate of veterans to be exclusively in the hands of the government.
