Comments Off on Panhandle ‘Moms Against Methamphetamine’ raise awareness with motorcyle event

motorcyclesAMARILLO, TEXAS — On Sunday, the Panhandle Mothers Against Methamphetamine group held a ride across Amarillo to raise awareness of the dangers of drugs and drug addiction.

The event titled “Hoods to Handlebars” was held  at the Tripp’s Harley Davidson Store. Motorcycle riders started in Amarillo and traveled to Bushland, Canyon, and then back to Amarillo for a rally.

This is the third year the organization has held the motorcycle ride.

All proceeds from the event go toward aiding with counseling and buying educational materials to help the group’s future efforts.

“It helps to purchase books, pamphlets, make videos, that we can take out to our other organizations to talk about the struggles of Methamphetamine,” said MAMas board member, Zane Watts.

“Education is most important if you have small children, start educating them right now. Put them on the internet. Tell them what these drugs do to them and that this can happen to them,” said MAMas executive board member,” Jody Jones.
