More than 400 participants, including 182 motorcycles and 20 vehicles that took part in Saturday’s benefit ride for the family of Trenton Miller. Miller will be a junior at Eastern High School this year. He was injured in a four-wheeling accident on Memorial Day weekend. He is currently undergoing rehab at Frazier Rehab in Louisville. His family provides daily updates to his condition on the Trenton Strong facebook page. “Saturday was a sight to behold!” said Melissa Burton, who was one of the event organizers. The ride went through five counties escorted by John Jones on the police Harley. Also among local law enforcement escorts were Dale Adams, John Rouston, Pekin Town Marshall Jeff Thomas and the end vehicle was driven by Washington Co Sheriff Roger Newlon! Each County the group travelled through met the crowd and blocked intersections to make sure there were no issues!

 

“The ride took alittle longer than we’d anticipated due to the large turn out, this was the largest Poker Run out of our County,” Burton said. “Just shows you what this community can do!”

There were large groups that came from Floyd County and as far as the Brandenburg/Fort Knox, KY area to ride for Trenton!!

Brent Miller and his two younger kids Tristen an Trevon also took part in the ride, he led the vehicles in the ride! There were people already lined up at the fairgrounds for the dinner when the ride got back. The entire day was a huge success, it far exceeded expectations. The day would not have been made possible had it not been for the great people that got on board with us to make sure this was a success!
