Why is this ride called the Pork Chop Run?
Dylan was a little boy, "Adopted" into the B.A.C.A.(r) organization in 2009 and given the Road Name Pork Chop.
For those who dont know how BACA works or what we do I encourage you to check out the BACA web site @ http://bacaworld.org
A victim of serious child abuse on August 3rd, 2008, little Pork Chop went from normal happy 2 year old to being blind, confined to a wheelchair, unable to speak and requiring a feeding tube and oxygen.
Pork Chop suffered 2nd degree burns to both of his hands, lighter burn's on his stomach, blunt force trauma to the head causing 9 skull fractures; shifting his brain 11mm to the left, blunt force trauma to his back; causing 7 spine fracture's, broken jaw, and corneal abrasions to both of his eyes.
Despite overwhelming odds Pork Chop managed to reach his 3rd birthday however shortly after his health took a turn for the worse.
On 7-19-2009 one month and 24 day's after his 3rd birthday he passed away.
As of the creation of this page (8-09-2010) the suspects in Pork Chops case HAVE STILL NOT BEEN CHARGED!
To say that Pork Chops touched the lives of those who knew him would be an understatement, and for this reason I have named this ride after him, in the hopes that his story will be known and one day justice will be served for little Dylan and that this ride will both educate and motivate people to become involved in the battle against child abuse.
