Season 6 Episode 3 Segment 2
Clint AKA Dragon - Guardians of the Children Canada.

Ride Like a Local was on site at Blackjacks Roadhouse for the Ride for Mom motorcycle event.  We talked with Clint AKA Dragon with the Guardians of the Children Wetaskawin Group.

The mission of the Guardians of the Children is to recognize and react to child abuse and educate the public to do the same; to serve as advocates to provide strength and stability to families in crisis; and be an answer to the prayer of an abused child or teen for courage, support and protection.

Dragon states they are here to help people.  Children and parents, both moms and dads.  They also help children and protect them through the court process to give them the courage to stand up and not be afraid.

Riders are here to help educate and raise awareness about abuse.

Krysta Shields of Blackjacks Roadhouse

On site at the Ride for Mom Motorcycle event, Ride Like a Local interviewed Krysta Shields of Blackjacks Roadhouse.  

The Shields family is responsible for the 2nd Annual Ride for Mom Motorcycle event.  A ride and fundraiser to end domestic violence.  With over 100 bikes showing up, the support has been nothing short of amazing.

The funds raised for this ride go to support 6 shelters in the Edmonton area.  Shields states that she chose domestic violence because it is often overlooked and does not have the proper funding. The cause is perfect for the riding community as someone always knows someone in such a situation.

Among the sponsors Krysta credits Edge Harley DavidsonHarley Davidson of EdmontonKlondike Insurance, Pratts Food and ATB Financial.  They are happy to say that all $30.00 of the registration fee is going directly to A.C.W.S.

Season 6 Episode 3 Segment 2
Alberta Sheriffs Department

At the motorcycle event, Ride for Mom, Ride Like a Local TV spent just a few minutes with Sargeant Daryl Brown and Sargeant Tad Childs of the Alberta Sheriffs Department.

The two Sergeants are on hand as escorts for the Ride for Mom event.  They say a member of the Sheriff family, who is also an organizer of the event, asked them to help out and they were more than happy to say yes.

They say that the most important thing is the community getting together to have a bit of fun, and to raise awareness for an end to domestic violence.

Thank you to the Alberta Sheriffs Department.
If you are blessed enough to live where you can be riding today, please remember to ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.
