To benefit the family of slain Eupora Police Officer Keith Crenshaw, area bike riders have decided to come together to honor him with a bike ride this upcoming Saturday starting in Eupora.

Crenshaw, who was an avid motorcycle rider, had many friends who also rode. In honor of him all motorcycle riders in the surrounding counties are asked to come out and support this cause. The bike ride will be free, however, donations are being asked for. All donations will go directly to the Crenshaw family.

Support from the community is also being asked for, even if you are not a bike rider. This event will try to be held every year in honor of the fallen officer.

All riders are asked to meet at the new city parking lot across from Family Dollar in Eupora at 11 a.m. Nov. 2. Kickstands will go up at noon. No route has been designated at this time.
