Ride For Missing Children – Utica

June 5, 2020 @ 6:30 am - 6:30 pm

We along with many of our hard-working volunteers that comprise our Ride planning committees and leadership teams for the Utica ride, have made the difficult but necessary decision to POSTPONE the ride to Fall of 2020. While we are heartbroken to make this announcement, we absolutely want to make certain that we are protecting our riders, volunteers, children, families, law enforcement partners, school personnel and our communities at large by doing everything we can to limit exposure.

You’ll be riding 2 x 2 as a unified team of bicyclists for approximately 90 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.

The bicycles are a tribute to Sara Anne Wood, who was walking her bike when she was abducted, and they are the vehicles we use to make our journey and carry our message along. They provide a visible means to spread our message about the plight of missing and exploited children, and the importance of child safety education. Our bicycles help us to communicate with those whom we ride by and to educate those that we visit.
