The Brotherhood Ride: Continuing the Journey to Ground Zero
The Brotherhood Ride continues to defy the odds, and the weather, as they are one mile closer to reaching Ground Zero in New York City to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the September 11th attacks.
With snacks provided by BistroMD along for the journey, each of the 40 local firefighters and police officers from local counties in the Southwest Florida Community are getting closer by the day to reaching their destination.
On the morning of August 29th, these brave men and women reached the 700 mile mark on their ride to reach the former site of the World Trade Center.
Even with the recent concerns about Hurricane Irene, The Brotherhood Ride has been met with clear skies as they continue to pedal their way toward Ground Zero.
BistroMD was there when the Brotherhood Ride first began their trek to New York City. On the morning of August 20th, these 40 brave men began their journey, along with a supply of BistroMD snacks to give them needed energy between meals.
“We will continue to follow the Brotherhood Ride as they journey to Ground Zero on our Facebook page, as well as updates posted through our Choose Health Challenge,” says Al Montone, a member of BistroMD’s marketing department. “They just left South Carolina a few days ago, which means they are getting that much closer to reaching their destination.”
The journey from Naples, Florida, to Ground Zero is well over 1,000 miles, and the journey will take this brotherhood about 22 days to complete.
This group of brave firefighters are riding to memorialize their 411 fallen brothers on September 11, 2001. With the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks just around the corner, the memories of their fallen colleagues are still present in their hearts and minds, as well as the rest of the nation's.
The Brotherhood Ride will reach Ground Zero on September 11th, just in time to take place in the memorial services for their fallen colleagues.
“We are proud to be a part of such an amazing journey,” says Ed Cederquist. “What these men do each day, and what they are doing by taking part in this journey, shows the powerful spirit of a hero.”
