A biker group that supports children that are the victims of abuse is holding an awareness ride along the Sea to Sky highway this fall.

The Greater Vancouver Chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) will be holding their 3rd Annual Awareness Ride from the city to Norman Rudy’s in Squamish.

The non-profit exists to provide aid, comfort, safety, and support for children that have been sexually, physically, and emotionally abused. The international non-profit has a presence in sixteen countries, with twenty chapters in seven provinces.

Chapter Vice President whose road name is Pooh Bear says the biker community knows who they are, but that they need to reach outside those parameters, to those that might not know they exist. He says all the money they raise goes to therapy for the kids; “unfortunately a lot of these children, they’re from a single parent, low income – they can’t afford therapy. So whether its traditional therapy or horseback riding, kick boxing, whatever the child feels is their help in them getting better, and going ahead with life, then that’s what we pay for”.

The ride leaves Trev Deely in Vancouver on September 3rd and is open to the public who also want to ride. Registration takes place at 9 am, with the ride leaving at 10 am. Once in Squamish there will be an opportunity for local families to see the bikes on display at Norman Rudy’s as well as various fundraising activities including a 50/50 and raffles.
