State troopers usually spend their days and nights riding the highway in their patrol cars, but on Saturday, some Missouri state troopers and supporters finished a 140-mile, two-day bike trek that took them from St. Louis Children's Hospital to Linn. The bike ride raised $3,500 to support Tony Peters, 7, a second-grader from Linn recovering from leukemia.

The bike ride, dubbed "Troopers for Tony," was spearheaded by Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Vince Rice, who heads the Patrol's training division.
