NJ motorcyclists raise money for local police departments, honor 9/11 victims
(08/21/04) LINDEN - More than 1,000 motorcyclists stopped in Union County on their way to Ground Zero to honor the September 11th victims and raise money to help local police departments.
Many bikers traveled from Washington, D.C. Many more joined them in the Garden State at their pit stop in Linden. The riders, including police and other officials, stopped traffic in Jersey City lining up outside the Holland Tunnel by Saturday evening.
Besides paying respects to the victims of 9/11, the bikers raised $80,000 last year through donations and registration fees. That money bought motorcycles for police departments around the country.
