PAINESVILLE, Ohio -- There was a big and loud show of support for a little girl in Painesville Saturday.

Dozens of riders from the V-Twin motorcycle club rode to the home of a little girl named Hailey.

Hailey has Goldenhar Syndrome, a rare congenital defect characterized by incomplete development of the ear, nose and lip.

She first met the group by chance as they were finishing a ride along covered bridges in the area. Hailey loved the bikes -- so Saturday, the riders presented her with an honorary membership.

"Everybody is all about the kids, and making them happy and showing support to someone who can use it," said Chris Nice, of V-Twin Cruisers. "This little girl has a rare syndrome, and she's got a tough go of it, and we're going to try and make her day, if not her life, today."

About 50 members of the club took part in the ride.
