19TH ANNUAL RIDE FOR MISSING CHILDREN ROCHESTER
Friday May 17, 2019
Total Sports Experience
The Ride for Missing Children is a unique and wonderful experience! You’ll be riding 2 x 2 as a unified team of bicyclists for 50 -100 miles, escorted by the NYS Police and local law enforcement of the jurisdictions along our route. The Ride stops at schools along the way for educational rest stops. We engage with the students bringing our message of child safety and abduction prevention and there is often a presentation at each school. For others, we Ride by while the students cheers us on. Before the Ride we reach out to schools that may or may not be along the Ride route with educational and awareness programs. This way we reach hundreds of schools throughout the year, each year.
To participate as a Rider, you must be willing and capable of making several commitments.
