Bikers raise money for Amanda Baker's son

Posted: Updated:
Family, friends and law enforcement officers are raising money for the son of a fallen correctional officer.
 
In February of this year, 24-year-old Amanda Baker died after being attacked by an inmate in the Scotts Bluff County Juvenile Detention Center.

Members of the Blue Knights International Law Enforcement Motorcycle club sponsored a bike ride fundraiser for Baker's six-year-old son this weekend.

Bikers started in Gering at the Oregon Trail Lounge and stopped in Bridgeport, Sydney and Kimball.

All proceeds raised will eventually help send Baker's son to college.

Nebraska Four chapter president Mark Bliss says the community's support for the Baker family continues to be strong.
 
"It's unfortunate that it took such a tragic event to get the public to come together but overall the support from law enforcement and corrections in this area is pretty good," said Bliss.
 
A benefit concert will take place at 8 p.m. at the Oregon Trail Lounge in Gering to also support Amanda's son.
