The ride is held to raise funds for the CAC and in memory of Brian Brackin, retired from the Dothan PD and long-time CAC Board Member who cooridinated the ride for years. He saw how the CAC benefits abused children and their families. From an investigator point of view, it helps to have the CAC offer a child friendly facility and trained professionals to talk to children during a difficult time. Working as a team with the CAC ensures the child's case receieves the attention necessary to help them cope with what is going on while also bringing guilty individuals to justice.

District Attorneys Doug Valeska and Kirke Adams support the event that is being held in partnership with Henry, Houston, Dale, and Geneva County Sheriff's Offices and the Wiregrass Harley Owner Group (HOG). Thanks to all the sponsors and Harley Davidson of Dothan for your support! / FB: Southeast Alabama Child Advocacy Center
