MORGANTOWN -

Motorcycle riders were able to enjoy the nice weather while raising money for a local charity on Saturday. The Ronald McDonald House Charities hosted its 18th Annual Poker Run.

More than 100 riders pre-registered and hundreds participated in the raise.

It's one of the charity's biggest fundraisers of the year.

"We have a lot of people that come back every single year to ride in this. People from, literally all over the country will actually come. We have some people that registered from Florida and make the trip up to participate," said Katie Wertz, the Director of Development at the Ronald McDonald House. "We've really built it up over a long period of time and gained a lot of support and we're very thankful for that."

The Ronald McDonald House wasn't alone in receiving some cash from the event. First and second place riders received $1,000 and $500 prizes.
