Ride for the Child
Sat, April 22, 2017, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT
What Is The Ride?
This 100-mile poker run will take place on Saturday, April 22, during the nationally recognized Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Ride will be the pinnacle to a month of events focused on our prevention work and how the community can aid in our efforts.
What Does the Ride Entail?
The Ride travels 100 miles through the Foothills, and begins and ends at Bleu Voodoo in downtown Easley. At the finish, there will be live music, great food, and prizes. We would love for you to be a part of this exciting charity event!
What Will My Money Go Towards?
Due to our state’s poor rankings in economic well-being, education, health, and community and family, South Carolina ranks No. 41 in overall child well-being. We need your support to continue to reduce child maltreatment, eliminate toxic stress, advance individual and family functioning, encourage school readiness, build parental resiliency, strengthen families’ support networks, and enable parents to construct protective buffers around their children. We depend on our community to help us continue our programs aimed at eliminating child abuse BEFORE it begins. Services such as home visitation for at-risk families, parent education classes, parent support groups, anger management classes, victim services and community education are all vital to improving the welfare of our area’s smallest citizens.
