On August 2, 2012 we lost my cousin, Chris Ball to a senseless act of random violence. He was a son, a brother, a friend and a great hearted man who meant the world to a lot of people. The way he was taken was beyond unacceptable and will forever burn an empty hole in our hearts and souls.
In 2013 we held a memorial ride for Chris and started an organization called Against All Abuse in hopes of something positive coming from this horrific tragedy…it was a great success with almost 40 participants. After some deliberation, we decided to do it again this year and come together with the objective to make this an annual event and eventually making it national.
