The Acadiana Chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) embarked on an "Empowerment Run" in Acadia Parish.
Today's "Empowerment Run" was to equip a young child, who suffered from abuse, with the strength and courage to overcome the obstacles placed in their life. The entire BACA chapter rides to meet the child and offers them a vest with a BACA patch sewn on the back. Following the run, the child is given the name and number of two BACA members, who then become the childs mentors for support.
BACA's mentoring program offers assistance and support to create a safer environment for abused children. BACA's purpose is to help the children and their families learn and realize how powerful the child and family can be.
