This brings the grand total raised by the charity to over $259,000. "What started as a way to help the NOCC create awareness for the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer has grown into a community event -- with riders from many clubs and participants from all over the area -- to raise money for local women in their fight for survival," Scully said. Four hundred and seven motorcycles, stretching over a mile, wound through McHenry County on the 55-mile charity ride, escorted by the McHenry County Sheriffs and the Woodstock Police Department, with traffic control by the Chicago Punishers West, and medical support by the EMS Roaddocs of Illinois. The ride began at Woodstock Harley-Davidson, 2235 S. Eastwood Drive in Woodstock, and ended at Niko's Red Mill Tavern, 1040 Lake Ave., in Woodstock, on Sunday, June 26.
