Saturday, October 11: Waypoint Gentleman Ride
Throughout the month of October, Waypoint Services will be hosting Gentleman events in an effort to spread awareness about domestic violence. Our focus is on the Gentleman and how they are helping us end domestic violence. Many times as a society we focus on the individuals who commit domestic violence, Waypoint wants to reach out to the Gentlemen who do not commit violence and are good examples of Gentlemen in our community.

Cedar Rapids registration begins at 8:00AM at Metro Harley Davidson, leaving CR at 9:00AM
