CLAYVILLE, N.Y. --- The hills were alive in Clayville as snowmobilers practiced for next week's big fundraiser, the snocross race.
Its called the Sno-in and it's running in its 46th year.
Dozens of snowmobilers were on the tracks at the lanterns in Clayville.
The riders, fine-tuning their sleds and getting the chance to check out the track for the first time.
Each year, Motto Mission Powersports dedicates a race to a local family in need. This year's recipient is Rylie Scott from Clinton. Rylie suffered from a brain tumor last summer and is currently receiving chemotherapy at Upstate Golisano's Children's Hospital in Syracuse.
A portion of the funds raised from the race will be donated directly to Riley.
"Obviously anytime you can donate to someone going through a rough time, that's great. But its also to remind the community and remind the public. We all get crazy in our everyday lives and you forget about the people that are going through these adversities every single day of their lives. And its a chance to honor them, the strength that they have and the positivity that they have through these struggles even though they have no choice," said Jaime Tuttle of Motto Mission Powersports.
Race day is set for February 22nd. Admission is 15 dollars for a day pass.
