13th annual Sweet Ride kicks off in Meridian

About 125 riders from all over Idaho came out to support the Boise Valley Pow-Mia Corporation.  

The group rode from Meridian to Sweet Idaho hence the name of the event the Sweet Ride. Sunday's ride is the 13th year they have been doing this.

"To bring awareness to those soldiers that are still missing out there. To bring them home and to bring honor to them and their families, and to bring closure for them," said Michelle Houde, organizer.

Following the ride, there was a silent auction and dinner that the group is hoping to raise five-thousand dollars.

Proceeds go to the National League of Pow Mia Families.
