The Fort Saskatchewan Motorcycle Association rode 150 kilometres for a good cause over the weekend.
 
About 130 bikers made the trek around the region, raising around $10,000 towards the Cross Cancer Institute.
 
"Years ago we had a member of the club that passed away due to cancer," explained Gerald Deck, president of the Fort Saskatchewan Motorcycle Association. "At that time, the club decided to do something in his memory and so that's when the cancer ride was born."
 
In the 20th run of the ride, the group rode to Bon Accord and because of construction on Highway 28, took a bit of a detour to Radway. Then it was back through Bruderheim on their way to Fort Saskatchewan.
 
The poker run prizes included a new Harley Davidson Sportster 883 Iron, which went to a rider who lost his wife to cancer last year.
 
Over the years, the group has raised $315,000 for the Cross Cancer Institute.
