7th Annual Ride to Remember
September 21 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
This charity event was organized to honor Fallen Officers Kevin Ambrose of Springfield and Jose Torres of Westfield. The primary purpose of the bicycle ride is to raise public awareness of officers who have died in the line of duty. The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the Massachusetts Law Enforcement Memorial in Boston Massachusetts. At 7:00 AM, on the morning of the memorial, participating bicycle riders will depart from the corner of Boland Way and Main Street in downtown Springfield, and ride just over 106 miles along Route 09 ending at the State House. After arriving in Boston, a memorial service is being held honoring Officers Ambrose and Torres, and adding them to the Law Enforcement Memorial.
