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.
