STATELINE , Idaho - "Look at all these bikes, look at all these people, you need these guys for anything, they'll be there," said Steve Groene.
They came to raise awareness of Dylan's Law, named after Dylan Groene, allegedly murdered by convicted sex offender Joseph Duncan.
"These guys are like a plague on our society man until we do something about it they're going to continue to kill our children," said Groene.
Now Steve is speaking out, hoping to get the initiative on the Washington state ballot this fall, a trend he'd like to continue nationally.
Groene will have surgery next week and might need to have his vocal cords removed but hopes for a quick recovery to continue fighting sex offenders.
"I'll do whatever I can, even if I have to get some kind of a sign language interpreter or something whatever, I'll do whatever I can.
Groene said the family probably won't do much to commemerate the anniversary of the attack. He said they will probably gather, say a prayer, then get back to work passing an initiative to honor his son's memory.
