On February 3, 2011 2 members of Paul "Spider" Webb & Caryn "Toots" Webb's family were victims of domestic violence. Monica Hudson & Nicole Cervantez were murdered along with Michael Tucker by Monica's boyfriend in Lake City, Florida. Nicole was 6 months pregnant.
Spider and Toots did not realize how much of an epidemic domestic violence was in this country until this happened to their family. We all have members of our families that could become a victim of domestic violence. The laws in every state are different except for one thing, none of them are tough enough or not always applied as they should be.
Because of this tragedy Spider and Toots have organized Ride 4 Reason...Stop Domestic Violence. The ride is taking place from Wednesday, July 13th and will conclude Saturday, July 16th. The ride leaves Montezuma, IA where Spider and Toots reside and will make overnight stops at Wayne Fitzgerald Camp Ground in southern Illinois, Jimbo's in Chattanooga, TN, and Soggy Bottom Camp Ground in Macon, GA. The ride will arrive in Lake City, FL on Saturday. The riders will ride to the house where the murders occurred and hold a candle light vigil. At the conclusion of the vigil the riders will ride past the Columbia County Correction Institute where they are holding the man responsible for these crimes. Saturday evening there will be music, speakers, honored guests and more in Lake City.
The route that Spider, Toots, and the other riders joining them will travel Interstate 80 East - 74 South - 155 South - 55 South - 64 East - 57 South - 24 South - 75 South - US 90 into Lake City, FL.
