A veterans charity ride made its way in Las Vegas this weekend.

20 veterans are on the road to the 76th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota.

The riders took off from Los Angeles Saturday morning with actor Danny Trejo riding alongside them. Comedian Jay Leno was also on hand to welcome the veterans.

The 9-day ride helps provide therapy to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other challenges as they return from service.
