The Brotherhood Ride organization consists of firefighters, police officers, and emergency responders who bike to honor emergency
first responders who have died in the line of duty. Their mission is to
provide emotional and financial support to the families. Over the past seven years, the group has honored the memory of 468 firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical personnel and raised more than $268,000 for their families.
