PHILIPPI -

Billy Lee's Mountain Ride usually benefits a Phillip-Barbour high school student, but on Saturday it was used to support a different cause.

The mountain ride brought in 70 motorcycles to support the Barbour All County Sports Organization and the Future Farmers of America.

Usually the ride benefits Billy Lee Brown, 18, who has a condition that causes fast growing cysts to form in his ears.

This year he wanted to use the benefit to pay it forward to other organizations.

"The last four years the community has really helped him out, this year he decided to pay it forward. He decided to help FFA and middle school sports. He said he couldn't imagine not having either one in his years of schooling," said Shelly Wolfe, event organizer.

In addition to the mountain ride there were 50-50s and door prizes.
