Ride for Missing Children Brings Message of Awareness & Safety to Lindbergh Elementary
Western New York's 12th annual Ride for Missing Children came to Lindbergh Elementary School this year, and the enthusiasm of students and staff alike was truly appreciated by the dozens of riders who took part.
Organized by the New York branch of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, the Ride for Missing Children is a 100-mile bike ride dedicated to raising awareness, showing support for missing children and their families, and promoting a message of child safety and abduction prevention. The event also raises thousands of dollars for educational programs in schools with upwards of 100 dedicated riders taking part each year.
Participants ride 100 miles in a single day, stopping for several minutes at local schools along the way. At Lindbergh Elementary, they were greeted by cheering crowds of students and staff who held colorful signs encouraging the riders and reinforcing their message.
