Hosted by the NYC Punishers Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club for the Forest Hills Volunteer Ambulance Corps, this Motorcycle/Custom car Ride is a NYC permitted parade in remembrance on the 19th Anniversary of those who served, protected, volunteered, and lost their lives that tragic day.
- This is following on 2019's successful event, in which TOCNYS had member participation
- Though $100/car is the advertised cost, discounts for everyone might be available with greater attendance numbers (we'll cover these details with registrants as the event nears)
- Long Island TOCNYS member Keith S. has offered to house any other members coming from out of the area to attend the event
- Registration begins at 8 AM, Parade starts at 1 PM
On 9/11 one of those lost was Richard Allen Pearlman, the youngest first responder lost that day. He joined the Forest Hills Ambulance Corps at the age of 14 as a Junior Corps member and excelled in the position of Dispatcher and at 18 joined the Senior Corps. Richie headed to the WTC on foot from his job at a law firm and was ordered back to his job by his employer for safety reasons, but remained at the WTC site. A picture on pages 16-17 in Newsweek's Extra Edition of America Under Attack shows Richie aiding the injured. He was only 18 years old. We have named the ride in his honor, "Run For Richie".
All pre-registered riders will receive a FREE commemorative challenge coin. Your coin is GUARANTEED. If you cannot attend the ride, it will be shipped to you after the event!!!
