BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Law enforcement officers from across the Gulf region are revving up their engines for a big motorcycle competition happening this weekend.

The 17th Annual Gulf Coast Police Motorcycle Skills Championship will be held Friday and Saturday at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales.  

Some of this year's participants spent time Wednesday getting familiar with the course and trying out some of their skills.  

While it is a competition, all proceeds from the event go to St. Jude's Dream Day Foundation.

Organizers expect more than 150 officers to participate in this year's competition.
