On Saturday, April 3rd from 7:00 am - 12 noon, the Saving Our Young (SOY) Baltimore will host its 1st Annual Spring Bike Ride. SOY, a non profit 501(c)(3), is committed to mentoring, and providing a safe place for youth in the community. This event will involve community youth, adults, police officers, or other criminal justice professionals coming together for a 5 mile, or 11 mile bike ride through the community, capped with fun activities for all.
The mission of Save Our Young Baltimore is to use law enforcement officers, criminal justice professionals, and educators as facilitators to strengthen the character and inspire change in the lives of the young.
