They rode through town today on a 650-mile journey. A group of bikers trying to raise awareness for the need for blood, organ, and tissue donations.
They're on a week-long Lone Star Circle of Life Tour that started today in Crockett. This afternoon, they rode through the Stewart Regional Blood Center in Tyler, in honor of those in need of a donation and those who are donors.
"My son had a heart transplant five years ago," Joseph Canal, the team captain, said. "And it's just very important for people to realize what a miracle it can be when someone consents to organ donation."
Tomorrow the bikers head to Dallas. They'll finish their tour in Houston.
