Anti-bullying ride honors Hammonds
The Unique Riders Motorcycle Club hosted a charity ride against bullying in honor of Dustin Hammonds, a boy who took his own life, to what family and friends say was a result of bullying against him.
Motorcycles, cars, and trucks lined up around Jeffords Park to make donations, support the memory of Dustin Hammond, and promote anti-bullying awareness.
Hammonds' grandparents were there in good spirit and thankful for the Unique Riders for putting on this event.
James Shipp with Unique Riders said, it was important to throw this event to let kids know that there is someone to talk to when they're being bullied. This is a tragic loss and they want to acknowledge and prevent this from happening again.
Proceeds from the charity ride will go to the Hammonds' family.
