A group of bikers stops at the Jesse Reed Memorial Bench site along the Ironton Rail-Trail in Hokendauqua during a recent event to raise money for Hokendauqua resident Adam Keys, who lost three limbs while serving with the Army in Afghanistan. A total of 220 bikers from Tunnel Towers Foundation in Staten Island, N.Y., and Warriors Watch, Lehigh Valley Chapter, staged at the Egypt Memorial Park for a 55-mile run and other daylong events. The foundation plans to build Keyes "a smart home," for which Keyes will later select the location.
