STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – A bike run was held in honor of four-year-old Rowan Sweeney, who was killed last year during a Struthers robbery.

Riding for Rowan was held at noon Saturday to raise money for Rowan’s Memorial Park.

It was at the East Side Civics on Midlothian Boulevard in Youngstown.

The event lasted until 9 p.m. There was also food and raffles as well as DJs and bands that played all day during the event.

“To see all the love and support for Rowan, this is amazing. Every time I hear one of those bikes fire up, I know it’s for Rowan,” said Rowan’s father David Sweeney.

“We just wanna try and give back and do something for Rowan to remember him,” said Bandit of Sorry Souls who was at the event.

Anyone interested in donating to Rowan’s Memorial Park could stop by the fundraiser.
