PORTSMOUTH, Va. — The Virginia Beach chapter of the US Military Vets Motorcycle Club hosted a bike ride to honor veterans and also raise money for the annual Mayflower Food Drive.

Other area motorcycle clubs, motorcycle enthusiasts, and even cars were encouraged to sign-up and participate in the "poker run."

There was also food and drink kiosks, and a raffle. The poker run ended at Bayside Harley-Davidson in Portsmouth.

The Mayflower Marathon is a 57-hour consecutive food and fund drive that takes place the weekend before Thanksgiving each year. It especially needs funds since the pandemic has affected families in the region.
