Second Annual Ride 4 Their Lives a Success!

The second annual Ride 4 Their Lives bicycle event was held on May 20th, 2011. More than 50 riders showed up despite some rain, to make a difference in the lives of children.

Children anxiously awaited their arrival at each school, cheering them on with messages of hope and perseverance to finish the ride. The cyclists in return spent some time with the kids to reinforce the empowering safety information that was presented to them in the weeks preceding the event. To round out the fun, the Jambulance along with the DJ guy provided music, dancing and fun at all of the stops.

The event ended with a picnic lunch for all of these heroes that took time out of their day to show the community that child safety matters to them.


There was also an excellent article posted on The Times Record Online Edition recently about the ‘Ride for their Lives’ event, you can read the article in it’s entirety on the Times Record Online…

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and John Walsh, co-founder of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) teamed up to focus on the issue of missing children in a two hour special airing Sunday, August 14 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM CDT. The show highlights the abduction of 6-year-old Morgan Nick from Alma, Arkansas and the journey her family has endured since her disappearance ten years ago. Morgan’s mother, Colleen, and her siblings are the latest recipients of an “Extreme Makeover” and through telling their story hope to try and locate Morgan as well as other missing children across the country.

From Colleen Nick:

“I want to take a moment to publicly thank everyone who gave of their time, talent, energy and heart to help the ABC program Extreme Makeover: Home Edition tell Morgan’s story. Not only did  EMHE have the heart to tell Morgan’s story, they grasped the problem of missing and exploited children and joined in the fight by showing photographs of 9 other missing children who, like Morgan, belong at home with the people who love them. We know that 24 million people watch Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. We also know that statistically, 1 out of 6 missing children is recovered because someone recognizes them from a photograph. With 24 million people watching Extreme Makeover, I truly expect that lost children will come home because of this ABC program. It is my hope and prayer that Morgan is one of those children.

I have no doubt that I live among some of the most amazing people in the world.  Each and every one of you are a hero – my hero.   Thank you!”

Clear Channel Outdoor in Fort Smith, AR produced this billboard to support the family’s continued efforts to find Morgan Nick.
