More than 500 motorcyclists from around the Carolinas braved cold, rain and slick pavement Sunday afternoon to stage the 13th annual Veterans Christmas Charity Ride to the Dorn VA Medical Center in Columbia.
At the medical center, which treats thousands of vets each year, bikers unloaded hundreds of bags of gifts. What is not distributed to vets this holiday season will be given out to vets during the coming year at the hospital and two homeless shelters.
Motorcycle dealers Jim Wertman of Carolina Honda and Gene Royer of All American Heating and Air started the event.
