Ride For Missing Children Needs Volunteers

One of the most worthwhile local events in central New York is “The Ride For Missing  Children”. Whether you bike the 100 mile trek or help in other ways, your participation is needed for this year’s event.

First, here’s what the ride is all about, according to

“In 1995, a group of 7 men rode their bicycles from Utica, New York to Washington, D.C. in order to raise awareness about the plight of missing children and to bring a message of safety to the people they met along the way. They arrived on the Capitol steps on May 25th, the first National Missing Children’s Day. Two years later, inspired by that first Ride, a group of 43 riders rode their bicycles 100 miles from Albany, NY to Utica, NY with the same message of safety and awareness. Thus began the Ride For Missing Children.


The purpose of the Ride For Missing Children (The Ride) is:

To honor the memory of all missing children

To raise public awareness of the plight of all missing and exploited children and the need for child safety education

To raise funds to support the missing children poster distribution, community education for the prevention of child abduction and sexual exploitation, and the mission of NCMEC-NY/MV in serving our community here and across New York State.”

Here’s how to get involved, according to our sister station, WIBX:

“The next Ride/Volunteer meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 16th at Valentino’s in Washington Mills.

For a volunteer application,

The Ride for Missing Children will take place on Friday, May 17th.
