Bikers these days oftentimes get a bad rap, but I'm here to shatter that stigma.

On Sunday, June 5, motorcyclists from across the SouthCoast and Rhode Island will gather for a cause that touches the hearts of many. Riding for Angel Babies has returned to raise awareness and money to help support families during a time of unimaginable loss.

Angel Babies is a non-profit that aims to ease the lives of grieving parents. They also provide memorial events, burial gowns, support groups and keepsake items.

"It is our mission to provide families who have lost a baby or child the support, compassion and love they need and deserve on their darkest day," Kimberley Remick said. "You do not have to walk alone."

All participating bikers will meet at Dartmouth Mall at 8 a.m. to register. The ride will kick off at 10, finishing in Plymouth. Food, music, and raffles will await riders at the finish line.

Anyone who signs up will receive a 2022 Angel Babies patch.
