GREAT FALLS- For the past four years Teigh Fleury has been battling cancer, but that doesn't stop him from giving back every year at the annual Men & Machines Car and Bike Show.
The show takes place at the Benefis Sletten Center Institute parking lot. It brings in car enthusiasts and families from all over the area for a day of fun in the sun. There was also food, activities for children, and live music.
But the main idea behind the event has a more serious tone, it's to educate men on becoming more aware of their health. After being diagnosed with cancer, Fleury explained why early detection of any health issue is the key.
"Sometimes as guys, we have to take a bite of humble pie to admit, hey yeah know I have a problem, I need to see my doctor," said Fleury.
Fleury said about 2,000 people show up each year. Money raised from today goes back to Sletten where it supports patients who may need things like transportation or help to get items around their house fixed.
