The Eagle Riders of Punxsutawney raised $2,000 on its annual motorcycle ride that was held recently, along with $1,000 donated by the FOE Eagles No. 1231, for Special Olympics. Jim Burton, WJAC TV meteorologist, member of the Special Olympics board of directors and a member of the Eagles Riders in Johnstown, said he was grateful for the money that was raised, which is used year round and not just during the Special Olympics games.

Burton said it is more than just providing athletics and exercise for special needs people; it is also used for medical screenings.

Dennis Knox, president of the Punxsy Eagle Riders, said the money raised locally was through the club’s 120-mile motorcycle ride.
