One hundred and thirty miles: that's how far hundreds of motorcycles traveled to help raise money for the Harrison County Humane Society.
Riders had stopping points throughout their route that went through Harrison, Taylor, Preston,and Monongalia Counties.
At each stop, they would roll dice to see who got the highest points. Whoever rolled the highest at the end, got a $1,000 prize. But that's nothing compared to how much the event usually raises, which is about $32,000 dollars.
Organizer Grumpy Nicholson said, "We have to be responsible for our animals. They're doing what comes natural to them. It's up to us to take responsibility and spay and neuter, so the population doesn't get out of control. We have a wonderful shelter in this county."
