Berkeley Police Officers are going the extra mile to help the needy. They're taking part in the department's 24th Annual Turkey Ride.

It's a two-day bike trek from Berkeley to Lake Tahoe to raise money to purchase turkeys and food to give to needy families during the holidays.

The first ride back in 1985 raised enough money to buy 250 turkeys. This year participants hope to raise enough to provide more than 500 food baskets.
