Bikers raise money for childhood cancer

GRAY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Hundreds of bikers came together to support childhood cancer and it’s all thanks to one very special woman.

Cindy Arnold considers herself a “cancer mom.” Her daughter is a long term cancer survivor. Her daughter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in 1993. She had surgery to remove the tumor and underwent chemotherapy. 

“She’s the strongest little person I will ever know in my whole life,” said Arnold.

Through this experience, Arnold decided she wanted to do something to support children just like her daughter.

She organized “Hawgs for Hope,” a motorcycle ride that raises money to support Middle Georgia families with kids battling cancer.

“My husband and I love to ride motorcycles and when it has to do with sick children, the bikes come out and they show up. They’re really very generous,” said Arnold. 

Arnold was right. The support from the bikers was tremendous.

“I’m taking part for a great cause. It’s one of the beauties of fellowship bikers. We get together and support charities,” said Hawgs for Hope participant, Glen Kohlhagen.

Although Arnold isn’t riding her bike this year, she is overwhelmed with the amount of support she received this year.
