AUBURN, Ind. (WFFT) - The United Motorcycle Enthusiasts are spreading support to some local children who've been victims of bullying.

They held what they call a love and support event at the skatin station in Auburn.

7 children in attendance were victims of bullying, and the biker organization says enough is enough, so they held this event to bring more awareness to this problem after children were allegedly beat up on a school bus.

"This bullying epidemic isn't just one kid or two kids. It's numerous children. We're just trying to get the word out there and try to get these kids some help and relief from their everyday experience at school," John Robinette, Assistant Director for United Motorcycle Enthusiasts said.

Melissa Hoover who said her daughter Cameron Horan was a victim said the support is overwhelming.

"The United Motorcycle Enthusiasts and the community that's came together for these kids is just remarkable," Hoover said.

The United Motorcycle Enthusiasts plan to have more events like these throughout the year to raise more awareness.
