ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - Hundreds of motorcyclists rode through the region on Thursday as part of the 28th annual Run for the Wall.

The event honors service members who were killed or missing in action and promotes healing among veterans.

The ride started in California and will end in Arlington.

WSLS 10 photojournalist Jeff Perzan caught up with Michael Jones, one of the most popular bikers, during lunch at Montvale Elementary School.
