Bikers pay tribute to fallen soldier

Posted:

OGDEN (KWWL) -- More than 100 motorcyclists have taken to the streets in Boone County to honor a fallen soldier.

The annual Sesker Poker Run was held on Sunday morning in Ogden. The bikers were paying tribute to Army Specialist Daniel Sesker, who was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq four years ago.

The ride has been held every year since Sesker's death. It raises funds for Sesker's son, who was born seven months after Sesker's death, and benefits other local youths.

Bob Ott, a friend of Sesker's who organizes the ride, says the funds raised will take of the little things for Sesker's family.
