Syracuse Ride for Missing Children
On Friday, Sept. 25, 200 cyclists will ride from school to school to raise money for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Help NCMEC in their mission to educate the public about the plight of missing and exploited children and the need for safety and abduction prevention education. If you are a bike rider, join us in the ride, and raise money for the cause. You may see our pastors among the riders. Orientation rides start Aug. 1st. There are opportunities to support the ride. Each rider raises $300 that stays in our community. It provides educational material, posters of missing children and recovery services. If you are interested in helping, contact Mike Nortman at 720‑0709, email@example.com or http://ride.missingkids.com/
