TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Community members hosted the eighth annual “Autism Awareness Motorcycle Ride” Saturday in Terre Haute.
The event started with registration at Ripley’s Bar and Grill before the motorcade made its way through Terre Haute stopping at bars and eventually meeting back at Ripley’s. Event organizer Tausha Beck said this cause event is personal for her because she has a son that has autism.
“I wanted to get the awareness out there and, ya know, I want everybody to know autistic people and children just want to be accepted,” Beck said. “I just want the awareness out there for everybody.”
The event ended with a 50/50 raffle back at the bar along with a celebration of the money and awareness raised.
