AUBURN, Ind. (WFFT)- Trip Seven North Bike Club is raising money to help a women's shelter in Auburn.

They held a ride and fundraiser to help the Hearten House that opened a couple of months ago.

Hearten House's mission is to help women who've been in abusive situations like substance and domestic abuse.

They also help homeless women.

They are also teaching the women how to re- launch their lives after participating in their program.

"It's so amazing and we truly appreciate the support because with an organization such as Hearten House, we rely heavily on the community," Director of the Hearten House Marisa McKenzie said.

Trip Seven North Bike Club was looking for an organization to help, and hope more people will reach out once they hear more on the Hearten House.

"It's a great cause. We'd love the community to get on board, and help them too," President of the Trip Seven North Bike Club Brent Warfield said.

The program at Hearten House can last from 6 to 12 months depending on the individual. It takes money to help them during their stay, so all proceeds from Sunday's ride goes toward the shelter in their efforts.
