Longview Harley riders go pink for awareness

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Harley riders are showing a flash of pink in Longview.

The Longview Harley Owners Group, or 'HOG,' led a Bikers Ride for Awareness (BRA) today to bring more awareness to breast cancer.

The 'Pink Heals' pink Harley-Davidson motorcycle, maintained by the Brothers Keepers Motorcycle Club of Longview, was part of the ride from Longview to Gilmer.

Women and men wore pink to show support for those touched by breast cancer.

"We're doing this to make people more aware of breast cancer, how many people it can afflict and all ages and race, and that people survive and that early detection is so important," says rider Kim Vasquez.

Money raised through the ride will go to help women in East Texas who are fighting breast cancer.
