Niagara to host Desiree's Ride

Desiree's Ride is coming to Niagara Falls this weekend.

The fourth annual motorcycle ride will help raise funds for two groups, Victim Services Niagara and Women's place of South Niagara.

The ride was launched in 2014, by the mother of 21 year old Desiree Gallagher who was beaten and fell from a seven story balcony.

She was left blind and also suffered a spinal injury.

She died two years later from her injuries.

Her mother, Susan Gerth, began the event as a way to bring awareness to victims of crime.
The ride begins Saturday at 11 am at Kingsbridge Park in Niagara Falls, with riders travelling to Fort Erie and then back to the falls.
