The Elm Grove Eagle Riders held a "Poker Run" to raise money childhood diabetes. The money will go to families who have diabetic children that are being treated at Wheeling Hospital's Center for Pediatrics.
The bikers stopped by Wheeling Hospital before the run to meet some of the young patients. The kids enjoyed revving the engines and trying out the sidecars of the motorcycles.
Pediatrician Dr. Judy Romano says the number of juvenile diabetes cases is on the rise in our area. Wheeling Hospital's Pediatric Endocrinologist, Dr. Amy Jean, is one of only a few in the whole state of West Virginia.
