"Ride For Their Lives" Campaign Making Stop in Urbana

August 26, 2010 - 4:00pm

On Thursday, August 26, 2010, Ed Smart and Ahmad Rivazfar, both parents of child abduction and abuse victims, will travel to Central Illinois by bicycle as part of an awareness and fundraising campaign, Ride For Their Lives, for the Surviving Parents Coalition (SPC) child advocacy initiatives. Rivazfar and Smart will stop at the Lake House at Crystal Lake Park in Urbana at 4 PM to meet guests and share information on how to protect children. From the C-U area, Smart and Rivazfar will ride to Kankakee, IL.

Riders wanting to join Smart and Rivazfar as they come into the C-U area from indianapolis may do so. There will be a meet-up point 60 miles outside the area. Riders may also do the last 10-15 miles with the group - the route is viewable on the ride website.
