MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK)- A bike ride fundraiser helps a well-known family with their fight against breast cancer.

The fundraiser event was held Saturday at Chunky River Harley Davidson, all for the benefit of the daughter of Lauderdale County Sheriff Billy Sollie this the second fundraiser within a month’s time.

The community came out to support and raise up this family.

“She is battling, and she’s fighting hard,” event organizer Mary Robbins
.
“We wanted to help her and today is about her. We just appreciate everybody helps,” event Kim Robbins.

Despite the rain, the riders hopped on their bike to Okatibbee Lake and back to Harley Davidson.

“If you don’t ride in the rain, then you are a fair-weather rider and we are not fair-weather riders. We are all time riders,” says event organizer Gwen Collums.

31 year old Caitlin Powell is battling breast cancer and has been bumped up to stage 4. One rider says this event hits close to home.

“No one fights alone. Whether it be the fire department, law enforcement or ems we are a family. Anytime a member of our family needs help I’m there. Regardless of where it is, how far we ride or the weather,” says Collums.

Caitlin is under treatment and was not able to make this event, so her 2 year old son Beaux Powell made sure he was there.

All proceeds will go to Sheriff Sollie’s daughter’s treatments in her fight for breast cancer.

The event had live music, food, a cakewalk, dancers, support from debs, and fellowship for a great cause.
