In the days immediately following the horrific attacks of September 11th, 2001, a local group of dedicated motorcyclists chose to show their solidarity with those first responders (fire, police, soldiers, EMT’s and others) who were involved with the rescue and cleanup of the sites. Not to be deterred by the fear of further terrorist attacks, they made a bold statement by their defiant ride.
That humble beginning has since grown into a non-profit corporation, the 9-11 Memorial Coalition, whose board of directors include clergy, civic & business leaders, retired law enforcement, physicians as well as motorcyclists. The purpose of the Coalition is to be a constant reminder to the public of the heroism and dedication of those who sacrificed their lives for us. To this end, the Coalition sponsors the areas largest annual motorcycle parade held on the anniversary of 9-11. Thousands participate in the memorial service and ride. The 37 mile escorted ride encompasses six different towns, with the routes lined with patriotic individuals, school children, veterans and first responders. The ride is free to all who wish to participate, but donations are accepted with monies raised to benefit local volunteer first responder who are injured or killed in the line of duty. By these gifts we seek to fulfill our motto, “We will never forget” and let them know their service is truly appreciated by the public. This ride is for the nearly 3,000 citizens that lost their lives on that tragic day along with the first responders.
