Memorial Ride and Drive Remembers All Abducted Children
Updated: Saturday, July 13 2013, 08:23 PM CDT
EVANSDALE, IA (CBS2/FOX28) – For the Collins, July 13th could be the perfect day to just stay home.
“To shut in, mope and just dwell about today,” said Heather Collins as she hugged her husband, Drew. “Dwell about that this is the day that our girls were taken from us and murdered.”
So they’re doing the exact opposite.
“When I wake up every morning that’s the first thing I see is Elizabeth’s picture,” said Drew Collins. “And that gets me out of the bed every day.”
Last year the Evansdale community organized a rider to bring home their missing daughter, Elizabeth and niece, Lyric. This year, the ride is to remember them, and all the other abducted children.
“It brings the awareness up that, ‘Hey, it can happen here to,” Drew said.
If the large crowd doesn’t grab enough attention, their more than 250 motorcycles will.
“I rode in the back and you couldn’t even see the cop car in front of everybody,” said ride organizer Chris Webb. “All you could see was just hills of bikes.”
All to remember two girls, taken a year ago.
“We wouldn’t have made it to where we are without our community and our friends,” Drew said.
The Collins said while the crowd may look a little tough, especially after they get on their bikes, they're also mothers, fathers, aunts and uncles. Many them were out in the days after the girls were taken, helping to look for them.
