Former United States Marine Corp. Sgt. Kay Knight and his co-rider, Denny Salisbury, were at Salt Lake's Shriners Hospital for Children on Monday, July 28, 2014. The two are part of a charity ride to honor Lance Cpl. Johnny Strong, who was killed while serving in Iraq. Because Strong enjoyed video gaming, Knight started the Pax2Pax ride, which raises awareness for the Child’s Play Foundation and children’s hospitals that benefit from the video game donations.
