CLAYVILLE, N.Y. --- The hills in Clayville were packed with snowmobilers racing for a great cause.

Moto Mission Powersports put on a charity snowmobile race event all day at The Lanterns in Clayville. Saturday's races were all for six-year-old Riley Scott from Clinton. 

Last summer, Riley found out that she had a brain tumor. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy at Upstate Golisano's Children's Hospital in Syracuse.

Drag races were held all day with snowcross racing beginning at 4 pm Saturday night. The ages of the riders ranged from children to adults.

Race organizer Jaime Tuttle said that events like these help people remember how easy and fun it can be to help someone in need.

"What makes them want to come here is knowing that just by entering this race, they're contributing to someone in need. And there's definitely more value to why you're out there and you know as you're out there racing for such a great reason. It's just all the more rewarding no matter how you end up finishing," said Tuttle.

All of the proceeds from the race and some of the gate fees will go directly to Riley and her family.
