|The Brotherhood Ride is a team made up of firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel, who ride bicycles to HONOR those who have died in the line of duty. We ride on or near the anniversary of their death to show the families, friends, coworkers and community that they will not be forgotten.|
The 2013 Ride will be dedicated to the following eight emergency first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting the citizens of their community in 2012.

We will honor them by riding bicycles through the state of Florida and onto Tennessee in nine days, covering over 750 miles. The ride will begin in Brooksville, FL on May 3, 2013 and end in Durcaturville, TN on May 11, 2013.
Our organization is entirely comprised of volunteers, who are themselves, emergency responders: firefighters, police officers and EMS personnel. Other than the cost of conducting the rides, all donated proceeds go directly to the beneficiaries designated. No one is compensated for their time in order to maximize the impact of donations. Your gift will directly benefit the families of fallen heroes, emergency responders who have given their lives while trying to protect the lives and properties of others.
We thank each of our members of the Brotherhood Ride in advance for their hard work and dedication as a part of this team, and we offer all of our appreciation to those of you that have chosen to make a donation and support our organization.
