This year's America's 9-11 ride is 17 years in the making.  

September 1st, 2018, will mark the 17th anniversary of the terror attacks in New York City.  And to honor those we lost that day and since, America's 9-11 Foundation supports this, America's 9-11 ride, to remember the sacrifices of first reponders and victims.

It is not only a ride to remember, however.  It is a fundraiser, awarding college scholarships to the children of first responders, the foundation donating over $360,000 in all the years it's been in existence.

Here's what it looks like:

The ride stops in Shanksville, site of the Flight 93 crash on 9/11/01.  It goes through Arlington, stopping by the Pentagon to recognize the victims in Virginia.  Finally, it ends up on the Island of Manhattan, the former site of the World Trade Center, the current site of One World Trade Center.  At each site, made a tragedy because of that morning seventeen years ago, there is remembrance; there is silence; there is reflection.  Those we lost are grieved.  The line of motorcycles stretches for miles, one year spanning the entirety of the state of Delaware.  It's rain or shine, hours a day for days in a row, all to ensure we never forget, all to help the next generation and the families of first responders.

This is the first article in a series of "Tell Me Something Good"s about the 9-11 ride.  We're going to speak to a scholarship recipient.  We're going to speak to an organizer.  We're going to bring aboard Razz on the Radio, who has participated in the ride every year since 2013.  We'll tell you how to support the foundation; you can even sponsor Razz at this year's ride in August!

Stay tuned for more information...the big ride is August 17th, 18th, and 19th, and, if we're lucky enough to get him there, he'll be offering all sorts of photos, videos, stories, and behind-the-scenes looks!
