Some 1,000 motorcyclists are raising money to help raise money for the family of a man who was gunned down during an argument over texting in a Florida theater.

The Chad Oulson Memorial Run took place Sunday in Port Richey.

Friends say 43-year-old Oulson loved dirt bikes and motocross. He left behind a 2-year-old daughter and a wife, but didn't have life insurance. In the days after the shooting, friends established a trust fund to help the family.

The Tampa Bay Times reports organizers of the fundraiser wore bright green shirts with the number 28, which Oulson wore in motocross events.

Oulson's wife Nicole and daughter Alexis were at the finish line to greet the bikers.

Retired police officer Curtis Reeves faces second-degree murder charges for shooting Oulson.
