A Coastal Bend tradition roared out of Corpus Christi Thursday as more than 75 bikers took off early in the morning for the 11th annual Roam for a Home fundraiser.

Nascar driver and Corpus Christi native Terry Labonte organizes the event every year to help support the Ronald McDonald House. The group is on their way to Galveston for a host of events.

"It's really important," Labonte said. "The Ronald McDonald House really helps a lot of people in our area as far as families that have children needing some kind of medical attention, that are facing some kind of long hospital stay. So it gives the family a place to stay. It really survives on donation."

The group will return to the Coastal Bend on Saturday.
