WILLIAMSON, W.Va. -- A motorcycle rally in Mingo County will take on a special meaning this year.
The Rally in the Valley, set for May 3-5 in downtown Williamson, will hold a motorcycle ride to honor the late Sheriff Eugene Crum.
The Sheriff Eugene Crum Memorial Poker Run will take place starting at 12:30 p.m. on May 5.
Organizer Paul Price of the Sidney, Ky.-based club Appalachian Brotherhood said the route is still being worked out. He expects at least 200 motorcyclists to participate.
Price said the fee to participate will be $15 per motorcycle. Proceeds will benefit the Mingo County Sheriff's Department.
Crum was fatally shot on April 3. His widow, Rosie, was appointed interim sheriff the next day.
The Rally in the Valley debuted last year as a one-day event.
