JOPLIN, MO --- Local motorcyclists enjoyed a Sunday ride while raising money to find a cure for muscle diseases. 

The 30th Annual Muscular Dystrophy Association Ride For Life event was today in Joplin.  The event started at Hideout Harley Davidson.  More than 200 bikers participated in this year's ride.

Area Director for MDA Lacey Goins said the money will help support the Muscular Dystrophy clinic at Mercy Hospital and the ride is a tradition that just keeps on going and gets more participants every year.

"It just gives hope to a lot of our families that are battling this disease," Goins said.  "So it's something people look forward to every single year is coming out and seeing all the great motorcyclists that, that help our cause."

Goins says this year's MDA Ride For Life event raised more than $28,000.
