Hundreds of bikers hit the road Saturday for the second annual Upstate New York Wounded Veteran Run. This year, the event benefits Paul Miosek, who nearly lost his life serving the country during Operation Desert Shield. Miosek came into contact with a high voltage power cable, lost both of his legs and was in a coma for six weeks. At times he thought no one cared.
Led by the State Police, bikers began their route in Brunswick and ended it with a barbecue in Clifton Park. Last year, their first year, the Wounded Vet Run raised $8,000 for another wounded veteran. Organizers say they doubled that this year for Paul.
