The annual Jennifer Short Memorial Ride is postponed because of the rainy weather we are expecting this weekend.
Organizer Ray Reynolds says he made the decision after seeing our forecast and talking with the Henry County Sheriff's Department.
It's now scheduled for Sunday, August 17th, beginning in the parking lot of Super Country 99.9 on Route 220 near the Henry, Franklin County line.
That's across the street from Mary and Michael Short's home - where they were found dead.
The event brings hundreds of bikers from Virginia and North Carolina for the 35 mile ride.
"People came to me and asked me to please keep this memory alive so I have done it and with the family's blessing I will continue to do it until they arrest someone," said Ray Reynolds, the organizer of the ride.
All money raised goes towards a scholarship for students at Bassett High School.
The Shorts were shot to death 12 years ago.
Their daughter Jennifer's remains were found weeks later in Rockingham County, North Carolina.
