Southern Saints motorcycle club holds cancer fundraising event

The motorcycle clubs in the area are no strangers to holding events and rides for members of the community.

As recently as December, several motorcycle clubs banded together for a coat drive to donate to those in need. But this Saturday, local motorcycle club the Southern Saints’ newest fundraiser will hit a bit closer to home.

“It’s still the same to this very day, you know. We’re here for each other, taking care of each other. And that’s what the biker lifestyle is all about. You take care of each other. You’re good-hearted,” said Perry Logan with the Southern Saints.

Logan has helped organize a ride this Saturday, which has been named F*** Cancer, and is dedicated to another Southern Saints member, Joe Ludwick, who learned he had kidney cancer in October.
