|Description||On December 3, 2008, Katelynn Stinnett died of injuries she suffered when she was sexually abused and beaten. Thousands of bikers across the nation grieved for the loss of this baby girl. They took up a collection and paid for her burial and her headstone which is inscribed with a poem written especially for her, by a biker. We vowed not to forget Katelynn and the thousands of children who suffer from child abuse every year.
Consequently, we decided to hold a nationwide event each year in honor of Katelynn, and to raise money to help local child abuse prevention agencies. Each state is conducting their own ride, but all rides will occur on the same day. We want to not only raise local awareness of the problem of child abuse, we want to raise national awareness of it. We want to make sure that even the smallest voices, those of the children, are heard.
The issue of child abuse needs to be addressed loudly, and what better way to do this than with the thunder of our bikes! Please join us on 6/13/09 as we honor little Katelynn Stinnett and ride to raise money for Alternatives to Violence, a Loveland, child/domestic abuse organization. Alternatives to Violence is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, so your donations (and ticket) are tax deductible.
There will be: Beautiful mountain scenery, live bands, a dance, poker run, 50/50, raffle, prizes, vendors and much more.
The run begins at 12 noon at Redhill Motorcycle Werx in Lyons, Co. From there we will ride through scenic Estes Park. There will be an end of ride party and concert at Mishawaka Amphitheater.
Tickets are $20.00 for riders and $15 for passengers, and may be purchased in advance by contacting Phoenix at firstname.lastname@example.org, or may be purchased on the day of the run at Redhill Motorcycle Werx. Pre registration also includes a free even t-shirt. Mishawaka has a capacity of 900 people, so buy your tickets early before they sell out.
ALL proceeds from this years’ run go directly to Alternatives to Violence in Loveland, Co.
