'Kick It Motorcycle Ride' takes off in Danbury

Dozens of motorcycle enthusiasts braved the elements on Sunday to "kick" cancer. They rode in the first-ever "Kick It Motorcycle Ride" for the American Cancer Society. The ride started at the Marcus Dairy parking lot on Sugar Hollow Road in Danbury.

Everyone who braved the elements has had their own experience with the pain caused by cancer. Twenty-five state and local police officers led the 60-mile journey.

Mother Nature made the road a little difficult but the riders say they'll be back next year, and however many years it takes to make a difference.

Each rider had to pay a $25 registration fee, and some raised up to $1,000 for the American Cancer Society. The money will be used for local hospital programs, research and advocacy.
