Supporters gather for first Ethel Precht motorcycle ride

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of motorcycles lined up at the Lake Charles Civic Center early Sunday afternoon for the first ever Motorcycle Ride for Hope.

Survivors donned pink shirts as they cheered on their supporters. 

The motorcyclists began the ride at around 1:15. They rode 112 miles in all ending at Pinederosa Park in Westlake.

Many of the survivors were overwhelmed by the support, including Ethel Precht herself. 

We'll hear from Precht, organizer Ricky Mestayer and his wife, a breast cancer survivor, on later editions of 7 News.
