VERNON, Miss. (WCBI) The Lamar County Police hosted their 10th annual “Ride for the Children” fundraiser this morning.
Riders traveled on a ninety mile circuit to raise money for children in need. The largest little red wagon in the world was also at the event for children and families to ride.
“If we don’t help the children they won’t have anybody. We help the local people in 4 counties, Lamar, Fayette, Marion, and Winston,” says program coordinator Estes Carl.
Trophies were awarded at today’s fundraiser for farthest traveler and oldest motorcycle.
