THE BRONX - Front Line Bronx Riders, along with other motorcycle groups, held an anti-bullying fundraiser today for the New York Arts Foundation.

The money was raised on behalf of Amanda Webber, a teen that killed herself last year by jumping in front of a bus because of constant bullying.

Victim Jamie Issac, 17, fought back against the bullying she endured for many years and got a state law passed that requires schools to report bullying and cyberbullying to police whether it happens on school grounds or off campus.

The law will take effect on July 1.
