HAGERSTOWN -- Mick Diseati, president of the Hagerstown chapter of Pride Motorcycle Club, said 91 riders participated Sunday in the fifth annual Jeffery A. Wroten Memorial Motorcycle Ride .Pride is a correctional employees' motorcycle club.

Wroten, a correctional officer at Roxbury Correctional Institution, was killed in January 2006 by an inmate he was guarding at Washington County Hospital.

At Wroten's children's request, the money raised by Sunday's 40-mile ride will be donated to Concerns of Police Survivors, Diseati said. The group helps families of law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty.
