Special Mission

Michele's Ride To Remember 9/11, Send-Off Ceremony

All Military & 1st Responders

Buffalo, New York - 08-04-18


 The mission of "Michele's Ride To Remember 9/11" is to remember and commemorate all the lives lost on September 11, 2001 and to raise funds to benefit various 1st Responder agencies.

In Michele's own words: "Thanks again for supporting my ride. This 8-day bicycle tour starts at the Western NY Iraq/Afghanistan War Memorial in Buffalo and ends at Seaford High School on Long Island. The first day of the journey is dedicated to the men and women in our military who lost their lives in the war on terrorism. We end day-7 at the Freedom Tower in NYC to connect the War Memorial in Buffalo to the World Trade Center, where our fight began.
Day-8 we begin at FDNY-10 House at the foot of the Freedom Tower and with a Fire Rider Motorcycle escort, travel to Seaford HS 9/11 Memorial. Our final day includes stops at FDNY Squad-18 and FDNY Ladder-132 in honor of Firefighters Timmy and Tommy Haskell, dear friends killed on 9/11. Along the journey we make stops at numerous Fire Departments and thank them for their service with a commemorative "Ride to Remember" patch.
Each year we raise funds for not-for-profit organizations who share our mission. This year we are fund raising for FDNY Family Transport.
