Bike riders hit the road for Honor Flight veterans

Posted:
WESTON (WAOW) -- People in Weston took to the roads Sunday to help give veterans an unforgettable experience.

For the fifth year in a row, bike riders helped raise money for the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.

The Honor Flight flies veterans to Washington D.C. where they tour the monuments and war memorials.

Organizers say they've been able to reach more people by bringing the ride to the Wausau area.

"It's not about anything other than taking care of our veterans and giving them what they deserve," said ride coordinator Mike Schlichte. "Some of those veterans never got a very good welcome back, and this is the least we can do."

Organizers say about 100 riders raised more than $20,000 through pledges and donations.
