FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - Lucky Harley-Davidson hosted a motorcycle ride Saturday to raise awareness for breast cancer research.

Kickstands for the second annual I Wear Pink Ride were up at 11 a.m. at Lucky, 6315 Illinois Rd. The Allen County Sheriff's Department will escort hundreds of bikes as they rumble through Fort Wayne and down Interstate 469.

"When you do things like this, you get phone calls to meet people," Lucky Harley-Davidson general manager Scott Wyman says. "I had a person just call me today and tell me that she just went through a double mastectomy three days ago. Talking to someone like that, who needs moral support and needs financial support probably, too, it kind of makes you motivated to get out there and do what you can do."

The I Wear Pink Ride falls on the 21st of the month, coinciding with 21Alive's I Wear Pink campaign geared to raise awareness for breast cancer and stories of survival so many in Northeast Indiana can relate to.

Festivities will will be live music, food and children's activities through 4 p.m. Saturday.
