Bikers are traveling nearly 10,000 miles and they're making a special stop in Dothan.

They're calling it Iron and Ash, a three week journey to raise awareness about warriors in combat and veterans. The motorcycle ride will benefit Cigars for Warriors and the Veterans Outreach project.

Cigars for Warriors is a nonprofit organization who provide cigars to overseas soldiers. Swedish Matchbox is donating 7,000 premium cigars and The Tobacco Shop is giving over a $1,000 in tobacco products.

“The fact is it’s the number one requested item [cigars] by the troops and what helps them out is what we're going to do. And then in fact is a simple way of saying thank you,” said Chairman Storm Boen.

To show your support or donate you can search them on Facebook: Iron and Ashe ride for Warriors.
