Motorcycle Run June 21st to Benefit Sexually Abused Children

Members of the Brothers By Choice community organization are coming together on Saturday, June 21 to raise funds that will benefit the Child Advocacy Program in Jamestown, NY. The Child Advocacy Program, or CAP, helps sexually abused children speak up and begin to heal.

Anyone with a motorcycle is invited to come out for the Brothers By Choice’s motorcycle run that day. The run will begin at the Child Advocacy Program’s office, 405 West 3rd Street in Jamestown, and then follow a route that lets them take a relaxing lunch stop at Cross Roads Farm and Craft Market in Westfield. They will enjoy lunch specials and other discounts from the market’s vendors before continuing on to finish the run at The Pad in Kennedy, NY.

Registration for the event is from 9-10 a.m. Kickstands go up at 10:15. The cost is $20 per bike, with an additional $10 fee per passenger. There will also be a 50/50 drawing at the Cross Roads. Proceeds will go directly to the Child Advocacy Program.

Organizer Dave Huber said the program is truly incredible, and he is pleased to be able to help them continue their amazing work.

“The program helps abused children to be empowered to tell the truth; to not be afraid of their attacker. It strengthens them to speak out and not be afraid,” he said.

The Brothers By Choice member has known children touched by the Child Advocacy Program, and he has been impressed. “They are an incredible team,” he said.

The Child Advocacy Program has its own doctors, nurses, and psychologists. They work with police to help the child feel relaxed and able to speak out. After undergoing victimization, the interview process can be frightening for children. But at CAP, “the child is relaxed. Only one person interviews them. It’s monitored by surveillance and videotaped. The kids get snacks, and they all go home with a stuffed animal,” Huber said.

The more folks who join the motorcycle run, the more good they can do for the CAP. Huber hopes to make the event a big one. After all, this one is for the kids.

Members of the Child Advocacy Program will set up a table at the Cross Roads Farm and Craft Market to help spread the word about their mission. The public can learn more about the organization at that time. In addition, motorcycle enthusiasts can check out the “Mad Dipper,” a vendor who will be at the market that day in honor of the motorcycle run. The Mad Dipper customizes helmets, ATVs, motorcycles and more.

Overall, the day will feature great fun for a good cause. No motorcycle? No problem. Visit Cross Roads anyhow and make a donation for the children.
