May 31, 2014 - More than a hundred bikers left from the Harley Davidson Shop on West 12th Street this morning to take an American flag to its next stop in Jamestown, New York.

This is part of a national Patriot Run to make sure the flag touches down in all 48 continental states.

The flag started out in Milwaukee on Memorial Day weekend.

Event organizers say this run is all about supporting our veterans.

All the money raised from today's run goes towards helping the Nation of Patriots, a nonprofit organization that helps veterans in need.
