Years after his brother was kidnapped and then murdered in Afghanistan, Christopher Cote is making good things happen.

Jonathon Cote was kidnapped and killed while working as a security contractor over seas back in November of 2006.

Every year in honor of his memory, Chris and his family have a motorcycle ride to raise money.

This year the proceeds which totaled $5500 were donated to WNY Heroes.

Chris wanted to make the donation now in honor of Veterans day and the anniversary of his brother death.

Although Jonathon Cote was not serving at the time of his kidnapping he was a veteran, having served four years in the army.
