About a hundred people participated in the 4th Annual Ride 4 Bryce this morning in Lancaster at Keysa Park. 

Bicyclists fought the wet weather to do this ride in memory of Bryce Buchholz. The 14-year old was killed in 2012, after a drunk driver hit him, while he was riding hid bmx bike home. This year's ride was a very special one. Because Buchholz would have been graduating high school this year. His dad, William Buchholz said everyday is hard for his family, but he says today's event isn't just about Bryce. 

"I'm trying to use this memorial as a reminder to not have people drink and drive. I think if we stop one or two people from doing it, it's well worth it. It's worth ever effort we put in there. I do not want to see any other family go through what I had to go through with Bryce," Buchholz said. 

Proceeds from this ride will be used to expand the Bryce Buchholz Skateboard And Bike Park in Lancaster. It' a place where kids can safely ride bikes and do fancy tricks on skate boards. 

The family has set up a website for donations. You can find that website by clicking here.
