The 4th annual Fort Scott Fire Department benefit ride took place Saturday to benefit Carter Collier, a Fort Scott youth who was born with a rare disorder called Koolen-de Vries syndrome.

The ride started Saturday afternoon in front of the fire station on National Avenue, went through a few nearby cities and ended in front of Holmtown Pub, where food was served and a live band provided entertainment. Along the route, riders raised money for Carter and her family.

Children who attended were provided with his or her own custom Fort Scott Junior Firefighter T-shirt along with his or her own fire department helmet.

All proceeds from the event go to the Collier family to help with any expenses they incur. Koolen-de Vries syndrome is a rare genetic disorder caused by a deletion of a segment of a chromosome that contains six genes.
