HOUSTON, Miss. (WTVA) - Forty-seven-year-old Robbie Pipken has been wheelchair-bound since being shot as a teenager.
But he's never let that slow him down.
Pipken says he enjoys taking his wheelchair onto the Tanglefoot Trail which runs from Houston to New Albany.
He has made the entire journey before. He says he will do it again. This time, however, he will double the trip to make money for a group called the Dream Riders.
The Dream Riders are a group of motorcyclists who do good deeds for children.
He is scheduled to take off from New Albany Friday at 5 a.m.
If the Tanglefoot Trail board allows him to, he will come back to New Albany that night.
If not, he says he will get up bright and early Saturday morning and make the ride.
You can visit the DreamRiders' Facebook page to make donations.
