More than 30 Wounded Warriors are in Chicago to take part in a soldier ride.

That's a series of cycling events aimed at helping those wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan with their physical and mental rehabilitation.

Members of the public also raised money and took part.

Friday morning's ride took off from Olive Park at Grand and Streeter.

Another ride will take place Saturday in Maple Park near DeKalb.

The money raised will go to the Wounded Warrior Project to help injured service members.
