K9s for Warriors benefits from Riding into History event

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Saturday will be a Biker Heaven at Riding into History at the World Golf Village. Hundreds of classic and vintage motorcycles from all over the world will be at the venue. Ten bucks is all you need to get in. Proceeds will benefit K9s for Warriors, a local non-profit group matching up rescue dogs with veterans diagnosed with Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Rescue dogs spend months in training and then they're paired with veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. In many cases, the dogs can sense when a panic attack is about to happen even before the warriors themselves.

First Coast News is launching Operation Orion to help K9s for Warriors.

Riding Into History will donate proceeds to K9s for Warriors. The Weaver Foundation will match the donation.

The event also includes a Historic Ride, Charity Ride and the Concours d'Elegance.
