Loud pipes and fast bikes, all in the name of stomping out child abuse and neglect.
The No Excuse for Child Abuse poker run is to help support Just For Kids Advocacy Center.n The center provides forensic interviews, counseling and medical exams for children who’ve been sexually or physically abuse. Riders from all over came out to help.
“We’re actually from the Kanawha Valley/ Charleston area, but we’ve ridden up to Beckley, we’ve got members who’ve actually come up from Virginia today, from Mingo County, so they’ve been on the road for three to four hours already,” said Bootsie, a member of Bikers Against Child Abuse, Kanawha Valley Chapter.
Bootise is just one of the many riders in Bikers Against Child Abuse. Their mission, to provide a voice for those who can’t speak up for themselves.
“Whatever that means to them, for them to be able to hold their head up and go back to school, participate in sports, be able to return to some kind of normalcy in their life,” she said.
