Bikers Rally

NEW BERN, Craven County — Workers at Coastal Women’s Shelter in New Bern are gearing up to host a motorcycle ride to help end domestic violence.

Executive Director Tova Hairston says the ride will consist of community members and a number of motorcycle club members riding 109 miles through Craven, Pamlico, Jones and Carteret Counties, taking a stand against domestic violence.

Hairston says the event will start at the Harley-Davidson Dealership in New Bern and end with food and live music at Temple Baptist Church in New Bern. The ride helps kick off the start of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

This ride, in addition to raising some funds to help support the families that we serve across Craven, Jones, and Pamlico Counties, the primary objective of this event is to let the community know who we are, the important work that we do and gear up some excitement and momentum for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Hairston says the ride will go on this Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Participants can register online on the coastal women’s shelter website.
