 ~Who was Katelynn Stinnett?~

 Katelynn Stinnett was a beautiful little girl who was savagely beaten, raped and murdered by Brian Crabtree...
her 18 year old babysitter.  

When admitted to the hospital, unconscious and unresponsive, she had a faint pulse. 
The doctors and trauma team did everything they could to keep her as comfortable
as possible to give her tiny body time to heal. 

 Upon exam and X-rays, pictures showed Katelynn's body covered in bruises,
her skull had been shattered and many bones in her body had been broken at one time or another. 
Little Katelynn hung on as long as she could, but her body was too damaged. 
Her fight for life ended in the hospital, on December 3, 2008 at the tender age of 2;
when she succumbed to the injuries sustained from that brutal assault.

Not long after Katelynn's burial, Crickett Lanham and I spoke about the epidemic of child abuse and how 
we could make a difference. 
She mentioned possibly doing a ride the following year in KY, in Katelynn's memory, as 
there wasn't enough information there where kids can go for help & feel safe.

 
I thought of the tens-of-thousands of children who's stories don't make the news -
and I said, "Crickett, THIS NEEDS TO BE REALLY BIG - LET'S DO A NATIONAL RIDE."

So with a little idea and a lot of heart, we began soliciting our friends in the motorcycle community.  
We asked for volunteers from all 50 states to try and make a difference with a charity ride. 
Anyone wanting to get involved could volunteer and put a ride together in their state; for their community.
 
All monies raised will be donated to the coordinator's charity of choice.
The organization/charity must be a 501(c) (3) non-profit and must be relevant to the event;
as child abuse prevention, awareness & early education programs are in need of major funding.
 
Please join us as bikers nationwide take a stand against child abuse!
 
On June 14, 2014
"The 6th Annual Katelynn Stinnett National Memorial Ride for
Child Abuse Prevention & Awareness" will commence.
Bikers alike will ride in memory of those who's voices have been silenced.
 
Katelynn's organs were harvested and gifted to others.
From one little girl, many live on.
 
Please spend an afternoon with us to help raise awareness and much needed funding for this cause.
 
 All proceeds/donations from this Southern California event will go directly to Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove, CA
 
 
  
It will be an honor for everyone involved... and a blessing for  those whose lives' were cut short.
 
 
Ride loud - Ride proud - Ride safe!
 
~With peace, love & respect always~
