EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Riders taking part in Evansville's 7th Annual Mad Max Ride covered 100 miles Saturday in an effort to raise money for Riley Children's Hospital and Deaconess Riley Children's services.

The founder says he wanted to bring something special to southern Indiana and this was it.

The fundraiser started at 9:00 in the morning with over 100 bikers, but more than 400 bikers were expected by the end of the day.

"We started out the first year with 26 people. We raised 7,400 that year and this is our 7th year and so far we've raised over 140,000 and that's not counting this year so far," said John Maxwell, ride founder.

The ride ends at Burdette Park where there will be food, bands and items up for auction.

The public is invited to attend.
