SPRINGETTSBURY TOWNSHIP, Pa.-- A nine-year old boy, who has been diagnosed with brain cancer, was the inspiration behind a benefit motorcycle ride fundraiser in York County on Sunday.

Ayden Zeiger-Kohler was diagnosed with two brain tumors and two inoperable glioma tumors.  His family will be taking him to John Hopkins Medical Center four or five times a week for treatment.

"4 Ayden Strong" held a benefit motorcycle ride to help his family pay for expenses. It started at Central York High School. For event organizers, the fundraiser brings their emotions front and center.

"It's emotional, it's exciting but emotional. Ayden, I've known him since birth and.. Ayden loves cars and motorcycles along with all of his sports, so we thought that this was something good to get the community together and raise some funds for him, said Melissa Fuhrman," organizer of the #4AydenStrong Motorcycle & Car Ride.

Those who attended the fundraiser received a plaque and number to place on their motorcycle at the end of the ride.
