Granite Bay High School students are among Rocklin/Roseville teens helping to put on this year’s National Child Abuse Prevnetion Month Motorcycle Run Saturday, April 2. Sign-ins start at 11 a.m. at Roller King, 889 Riverside Ave. in Roseville. From making festive signs and seeing the riders off, to posting promotional flyers and baking cookies for their lunch, students report they are excited to be participating in this special event. “We feel quite honored that our high school was selected to help put the program on,” said K.C. Wachs, English teacher at Granite Bay High School. Wachs is being honored the evening prior during the Heroes With Heart Gala as California Teacher Of The Year. She has helped students get involved with more than a dozen community service efforts in the last year alone. The prevention month run is open to all motorcycles and vehicles. Participants are asked to make a minimum of $15 contribution, which includes lunch, run pin and raffle tickets. The ride will depart at Roller King at noon, move onto a stop at Valentia Club and end at Bunz & Co. in Roseville, where there will be food and a live band along with raffle drawing.
