PAYNESVILLE -- Family and friends of Joe Moser have been celebrating his life for the past seven years with an annual motorcycle ride.

However this Sunday, they're riding not only to honor his memory but to raise money for a special cause.

Riders will be getting on their bikes to raise money for autism and families with special needs children.

Joe's sister, Sheryl Fuchs says this is the first year the ride has added a cause and many are excited.

The ride begins at 11:00 a.m. this Sunday at Paynesville Gazebo City Park.

The ride is $20 per vehicle and Fuchs says you don't have to just ride a motorcycle.

A free will offering for lunch will be taken, with music by Terry Nelson will start around 1:30 p.m.

All the money raised will be donated to West Central Industries in support of their cause.
