Southern New England Brotherhood Ride departs in honor of fallen first responder

From Thursday, August 6th through Sunday, August 9th, 2020, the Southern New England Brotherhood Ride will conduct a 4-day 200-mile bicycle ride through over 50 communities in Massachusetts and Rhode Island to honor 12 first responders who paid the ultimate sacrifice to the communities in which they served and protected. This year’s ride will begin in Rochester, MA, and will travel through several communities before completing our mission. Due to the current state of the pandemic, we were unsure how to make the ride possible as we were unable to secure overnight accommodations. To honor and ride in the memory of the 12 heroes that paid the ultimate sacrifice in 2019 we have decided to make day trips. Each day we will be starting at different locations throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island to honor the 12 heroes and show the support to the families, departments, and communities of the loved ones lost that they will NEVER be forgotten.

The Brotherhood Ride takes place one year after the death of a first responder in MA, RI, or CT to show the communities where they served, their department, and their family that their acts of bravery will never be forgotten. SNEBHR is a nonprofit organization established in 2018 as a chapter of the Brotherhood Ride of Florida. We are a team of active and retired firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical technicians who ride bicycles to honor the memories of fallen first responders who suffered a line of duty death from the previous year. The SNEBR is entirely made up of volunteers. No one collects a paycheck or compensation for their time. Everyone who participates does so on either their own personal time or vacation time. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. Other than the cost of the ride itself, all of the proceeds and monies raised, from fundraising and donations will go directly back to the families of the fallen.

It is not a race, it is not a competition, we do not ride for us, we ride to remember our fallen heroes, our brothers and sisters, we ride in their memory and to let their families know that we truly will “never forget” they paid the ultimate sacrifice.

“So stand down my brother, you have completed your shift. Let our legs carry your memory
and remind all who will listen that you gave your life to save a total stranger”.
– Jeff Morse Founder Brotherhood Ride Florida
