Just over one month after the deadly shooting, Perry is seeing an outpouring of support as they host their first big fundraising event since the tragedy.
The annual BRR Bike Ride is near and dear to Perry residents' hearts, and this year they are seeing a record number of registrations.
The bike ride is the biggest fundraising event of the year for the Perry community. This year, the city says it will be extra powerful, as it's taking place just one month after the deadly shooting.
"People are really looking for ways to show their support for the community and rally," said Lynsi Pasutti, executive director of the Perry Chamber of Commerce. "This is one of those events that I think people can really get behind."
The bike ride on Saturday, Feb. 3 is an opportunity for the community to come together and raise money, at an event that everyone counts down to.
"Over the past month, time has both stood still and rushed forward beyond belief, and I would say almost immediately there was a call to action from all walks of life," Pasutti said.
