Ride For 9/11: LA to NYC

This morning, a group of Los Angeles area firefighters left Hollywood on a six week, 3,300 mile journey that ends in New York City for the ten year anniversary of 9/11. The Ride For 9/11 benefits The Leary Firefighters Foundation and Wounded Warrior Project, and you can follow their trip plus donate at their website.

I was lucky enough to be at the event this morning, as I know two of the riders involved (Unfortunately, I forgot my camera so all I have is the camera phone shot above…) I can say that it was extraordinarily moving to here them explain why this was so important to them. They are showing incredible courage, and watching them roll out with a full police and fire escort, plus the motorcycle group The Fire Hogs was an amazing experience and made me proud.

Godspeed, gentlemen.
