Hundreds of bikers are expected to fill the streets of Frankfort this Saturday as they 'Ride To Remember'.

It's all to help raise money for the construction of the Kentucky National Guard Memorial in Frankfort.

Organizers expect around 500 bikers to make the trip.

Joshua Witt is with the Kentucky National Guard.

He says,"This will be our third fundraiser. And this year, we're really hoping to raise another $100,000 towards the construction of the Memorial. We believe if we're successful in this mission, then we can have this memorial constructed by Veteran's Day, 2014."

'Ride to Remember' will include a full day of activities, concerts, food and auctions.

It will be held rain or shine on August 24th.
