September 11, 2001 is a day we will never forget. Many men and women lost their lives trying to save the innocent victims of a this terrorist attack on America. Police, fire and military men and women put their lives on the line everyday to protect us. They are our heroes and the event I was involved in was to honor them. On September 11, 2011 The Chick-Fil-A Ride For the Heroes and Patriot Festival took place raise money and honor first responders. The event is specifically a tribute to our military, fire and police personnel, both serving and fallen. The event kicked off with a 28 mile bike ride that gains 2,200 feet in elevation. Following this race was a festival that included members of the military, fire fighters and police officers. Proceeds from this event went to support 3 local charities that support these men and women and their families. The charities are: Home Front Cares, Fire Fighters Memorial Fund and The police Officers Memorial. It was an amazing day and I was honored to give my time to support my hometown heroes here in Colorado.
