The Beaman Home will host its first annual “Bikers Against Bruises” motorcycle ride on Oct. 6. The event is meant to bring awareness to domestic violence and benefit the home, which serves as an emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children.
Entry is $25 for a single rider and $30 if there are two riders on the bike. Anyone who has a motorcycle is welcome to attend. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. The ride starts at 11:30 a.m.
“We are raising awareness because October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month,” said Rachel Wallace, who is heading up the event. A biker herself, Wallace enjoys riding for a cause and hopes that other bikers will want to attend the event as well.
The ride will begin at the K21 Health Services Pavilion in Warsaw, travel into Marshall County and end at the VFW in Rochester, Fulton County.
Also included during the event will be a silent auction and a raffle.
“Bikers don’t mind putting on leather for a good cause,” Wallace said.
The Beaman Home is located in Warsaw and serves Kosciusko, Marshall and Futon counties.
