Kruisin' for Kristin honors cancer fighter in Wake County

WILSON, N.C. (WTVD) -- Drivers and riders put on an overwhelming show of support Saturday afternoon in Wake County for a woman who fought a brave battle with cancer.

Jeep and motorcycle owners formed a large convoy in honor of Kristin Owens who died of ovarian cancer one year ago.

They called their ride "Kruisin' for Kristen."

They rode from Kristen's hometown in Wilson to Garner.

The Eastern Outlaw Jeep Club used the event to raise money for the Kristen Owens scholarship fund.
