LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- Motorcyclists from around the Greater Lafayette area spent today riding to raise awareness for veterans.
The fifth annual Honor Flight ride celebrated the anniversary of Harley Davidson.
Money from Saturday's event will go toward Missions 21 and 22, which are being held on September 11 and October 16.
The organization will be taking 85 veterans in an airplane to honor veterans and those who lost their lives serving.
Those events are both free.
Coordinator Dana Vann said despite the weather, it was a great turn out.
"There was probably 75 or 80 motorcycles and some people had two people on them," said Vann. "We had a good showing for a little bit of an overcast and cool day but we are really happy with the people that did come out."
This is the last year for the Honor Flight until their memorial flight takeoff.
