The Bikers of Central Kansas raised more than $900 during its annual Chili Challenge to benefit Golden Belt Home Health & Hospice. The money will be used to help the non-profit agency pay for hospice patients’ medications.

Johnny "Shorty" Adams of The Men MC won $100 for first place and donated his winnings back to GBHH&H.

A trophy for second place was awarded to the Ellinwood Clinic, represented Rhonda Settle, Dracie Demel, Jessica Grigoreva, Deadra Schlotthauer and Alisha Patton.

The third-place trophy went to Darrell Turley of the Kansas Sidewinders MC, while Stan Jantz of the American Legion Riders won the Best Presentation Award.

"This was the 12th annual BOCK Chili Challenge and we can’t thank its members enough for their long-time commitment to our patients," said Donita Wolf, GBHH&H director. "Everyone can be assured that the entire $914 will help our neighbors who are facing a difficult time of life."
