FORT MYERS, Fla. -- This weekend a group of motorcyclists is honoring fallen heroes in a special way. Law enforcement officers, military and EMS workers are revving their engines for the 10th Annual Pat Healey Fallen Heroes Poker Run.
John Burchett and and Link Barton, or "Tatanka" and "Professor," respectively, as they're known on the road, are here today to tell us more about the event.
It kicks off Sunday at 9 a.m. at the Harley Davidson in Fort Myers. The run ends at the Sandy Parrot. The poker run started in 2003 and now has more than 60 chapters nationwide.
This year a big chunk of the funds raised will go to Hope Hospice as well as law enforcement, EMS and military personnel in Lee County.
You don't have to have a motorcycle to participate. Some drive cars and others ride bicycles.
