A Ride for Cancer

Saturday young riders put the rubber to the road, riding bikes for many laps around the First Baptist Church in Wells. Organizer Laura Bobbitt says these riders are blessed with healthy childhoods so they wanted to give something back to the children suffering from cancer at the St. Jude Research Hospital. Bobbitt says the wheels for life Bike-a-Thon got off to a slow start, but with the help of businesses and folks in East Texas this year's fundraiser is expected to be a success.   The riders say they get a warm feeling knowing every lap they make around this church means a life might be saved at the St. Jude Hospital.
