Bike ride for child abuse prevention

Lubbock, TX (KCBD) - Hundreds hopped on their Harley's Sunday and hit the streets to raise awareness for child abuse prevention. Bikers took a memory ride to a candle light vigil at the First Church of the Nazarene.

Blue ribbons were tied to all the motorcycles that read-"it shouldn't hurt to be a child." Ami Hill-Rendon the organizer explains, "A memorial service for the 220 children that died last year as a result of child abuse in Texas alone."

 Organizers say the Lubbock area has the second most child abuse cases per capita in the state of Texas, and they hope raising awareness will change that.
