Thousands of bikers plan to ride through Newtown this weekend to raise money for those affected by December's shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Organizers say about 3,000 people are expected to participate in Sunday's Green Ribbon Ride, which will start in Shelton and end in Trumbull.

Several Newtown streets will be closed as the bikers make their way through town between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Money raised in the charity ride is slated to go to several charities, including the Sandy Hook Family Healing Fund, Newtown Police Union and Newtown's volunteer fire companies.
