JACKSONVILLE, FL  --  A record crowd and a big, fat check!

Riding Into History this year at the World Golf Village drew more than 4,000 people.  It's biker heaven for any enthusiast.

The 9th annual event includes a charity rides, a bike show, and a bikers' ball.

And this week we're announcing Riding Into History is giving $35,000 from the event to Buddy Check 12.

That means,  over the years, Riding Into History has given Buddy Check more than $170,000 total.

"It's unbelievable," Jackie Aldrich says.  Jackie is a breast cancer survivor who proudly wears a Buddy Check pin.   She and her husband, Billy, inspired the creation of Riding Into History.

Next year in May the bikers will focus on The American Bike. So, Harley lovers, you're in for a treat.

Buddy Check 12 is Jeannie Blaylock's project with Baptist Health to encourage women to do breast self exams the 12th of every month, remind their buddies, and get regular mammograms.

The project has saved several hundreds lives on the First Coast.
