In the latest reported annual numbers, for Onondaga County; 443 children were reported missing and 1,917 were reported as Abused or Mistreated. The Syracuse Ride for Missing Children is a group of local volunteers who believe we can have a positive impact on these numbers. In  2018, for the 17th year, as volunteers we are working with the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children of NY (NCMEC/NY) in their mission is to find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation and prevent future victimization.

We provide hope to the families of the missing, and funding for  their mission efforts  improving children’s lives. We deliver our message on an escorted bicycle ride  through Onondaga County. Along the way we stop at schools to raise awareness in children about being safe. This year we will interact with over 7,000 children promoting the message of safety.


To participate as a Rider, you must be willing and capable of making several commitments.

NCMEC/NY introduced The Ride for Missing Children to the Syracuse community in 2003, as the Finger Lakes Ride. It has now become known as the Syracuse Ride with a yearly goal of 200 riders.

We ask that you raise at least $300 to help fund NCMEC/NY’s educational programs. If you recruit a NEW rider, you both pledge only $250 each.

Funds raised by the Syracuse Ride for Missing Children remain in the local community to provide case assistance and spearhead prevention education services across upstate New York.
