FORT LEE, N.J. — The 350 riders who took off from Ross Dock in Fort Lee had one very important stop to make: the Freedom Tower.

Hackensack University Medical Center officials placed a wreath at the site to honor the lives lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

More than $700,000 was raised on the run for the Center for Behavioral Health and Medicine at Hackensack University Medical Center, making it the most successful year yet.

HUMC's Diego Coira M.D., said the funds will go toward building a state-of-the-art educational and treatment facility for opioids, due to the epidemic in the area.

Sanzari's grandson, Luke Sanzari, picked the name of the winner of the 2016 Harley-Davidson FLTRXS Road Glide Special "Hard Candy Custom Gold Flake," worth approximately $28,000. The winner was not in attendance.

The Earthgrinders are providing music for the 8th year. Members Daniel Mulcair (vocalist), William Livingston (guitar/vocalist), Michael Morshuk (bassist/vocalist), Phil Silverberg (keyboards) and Vin Mott (drummer).
