Local Bikers Ride For Breast Cancer Awareness

More than 1,000 bikes hit the road to raise money for a good cause.
BARTONVILLE – More than 1,000 bikers are revving their engines for a good cause. They’re raising awareness for breast cancer.

The sixth annual “Bikers for Ta-Tas” event started from the American Legion in Bartonville.

Bikes paid an entry fee for the 140 mile ride across central Illinois.

Organizer Nancy Borum said all the money goes to the Unity Point Health – Methodist Breast Health Center.

She said she’s blown away by the growing amount of support. “It's amazing, I get goose bumps, it's just amazing to see the biker community, how generous they are and how many, all walks of life, bikers come from but how generous they are."

The event has raised more than $67,000 in its six years. Borum said that money stays right in central Illinois.
