MADISON COUNTY, Ind. -- A motorcycle club has taken on the challenge of providing support and comfort for children who have to testify in court against their abusers. 

The Guardians of the Children are volunteers and they have 50 chapters in 20 different states, including Indiana. 

Marilyn Reason's granddaughter was raped and had to testify against the man charged with abusing her. The day of the trial, Reason said the Guardians of the Children were there to help. 

"They met us at the door," said Reason. "They came here on their motorcycles and escorted us to the courthouse. They kept her surrounded on each side of her walking into the courthouse."

Bryan Wright said most of the "Guardians" have other jobs, but they're all passionate about what they do to help children. 

"I have a full-time job in Anderson. I do this on my spare time," said Wright. "It's almost like another full-time job. These kids deserve justice."

The Guardians of the Children currently only has chapters in Grand and Marion counties but are helping children in Delaware, Madison and Miami counties as well.
