Ride to Remember honors fallen heroes

Posted:

Our top story pays tribute to those who have given so much...

That's what over 500 bikers did in Elkhart today.  It was the 15th annual Ride to Remember which honors fallen police officers, firefighters and veterans.

Hundreds of bikers gathered for an escorted ride around the county.  Organizers say this time of year has extra meaning.

"We always have it around the September 11 anniversary of 9/11, because it was a huge factor, there were 343 firefighters killed in the world trade center," says Rob McClintic an organizer.

The 70 mile ride took about an hour and a half to complete.  If you missed out, don't worry, organizers say the event will return next year.
