The 5th annual Memorial Ride for Tori Stafford drew plenty of bikers and community support on Saturday.
WOODSTOCK - Nearly 100 bikers came out to show their support during the 5th annual Memorial Ride for Tori Stafford.
Tori would have been 16 this year.
All of the money raised at the event went towards the local Canadian Mental Health Association. They also had a BBQ, face painting and other activities for families all day at the Foodland parking lot. Tori's Father Rodney Stafford tells Heart FM it was great to see the community support once again.
"It's also a way to keep the awareness out there for everybody else's children but at the same time it is a good way to keep the communities mind familiar with what's going on."
Stafford says this event is also a way to keep the awareness out there for everyone else's children. One thing they were providing was free child identification kits for parents to help protect their children from being abducted.
"There was a number of people who came in to have their children done with the kits, it wasn't a steady flow but we did have a number of people come in for the BBQ just to give condolences and to give donations to the CMHA, it was a really nice day."
