LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Local motorcyclists revved up their engines for at-risk youth this weekend.

More than 150 motorcyclists took off Saturday morning for the 5th annual poker run called "Benefiting Area At-Risk Kids" or (B.A.A.K.). 

The 186 mile-route included four parishes. All of the proceeds benefit the youth of Harbor House.

Over the past four years, B.A.A.K. has raised $74,000 for Harbor House. Organizers hope this year's event will put their total over $100,000.

"It goes for the kids' needs - that's the deal I made with Harbor House, which is the only safe haven for at-risk youth in the five-parish area. It's a great organization. None of it goes to any administrative fees whatsoever. Every bit of it goes to the kids' needs because if we can change one kid's life we have done something," said Bob Redmon, with B.A.A.K.

This year's event expanded to also include a classic car show.

Motorcyclists were also treated to live music and food at Micci's following the poker run.
