Snapping Shoals EMC, in support of the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, held its seventh annual Ride for the Cure motorcycle ride fundraiser on Saturday.

The 60-mile ride through Newton, Jasper, Morgan and Walton counties began at 10 a.m.

"Everybody deals with the disease in some form or another, whether it's someone close to you or someone you know," said Wayne Kitchens, an event organizer. "And we can't cure cancer ourselves, but at least we can pay someone else to do it.

"We really appreciate the help so many people have given," Kitchens added. "A lot of local businesses were very generous and donated a lot of stuff... Door prizes are our biggest draw. Without door prizes, the event wouldn't be nearly as big as it is. People like to take something home with them."
