Motorcycle riders were out in force Sunday raising funds for 13-year-old Dawson Jones. Jones, from Catawissa, MO, has brain cancer that may be terminal.   The riders were raising money for Dawson so he can fulfill some wishes on his so called “bucket list”. One of those wishes was to ride a “bullet bike.” This is where the members of STL RYDERZ decided to join in.

The ride started in Eureka and the riders escorted Dawson to the Eagles Lodge in Pacific, Missouri where there was a big fundraiser.  During the ride, Dawson got to ride on several kinds of motorcycles from sport bikes to Harleys.
