The 10th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy is coming up; and one group of Americans want to honor the day in a very distinctive way. "Run to the Cascades" is a motorcycle rally that calls for riders to gather at the Crook County Fairgrounds on September 8th through the 11th. Aaron Myhra, a spokesman for the event says they already have a lot of riders signed up to attend: “When we started this, we really though this would be a regional type of situation, but as recently as two days ago, I got word that there's people as far away as Maryland and Illinois, New Zealand, very large groups of people, not just one or two coming from a very long distance." Myhra says they will have a 9/11 salute parade ride through Prineville on Saturday, September 10th, and their goal is to have one rider for every soul lost on the 9/11 attack, and every soldier from Central Oregon who has lost his life since then. Myhra says you don't have to come on a motorcycle to participate. It's also a fundraiser for about 15 different charities; many support veteran's services. For more info: http://www.runtothecascades.com.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
