Event Description

This year will be our second annual Gratitude ride. We chose September 11th for the event because we felt that there is no better day to show our local hero's how much we appreciate them. Last years event was a huge success with over 250 bikes on the 40 mile run and we are hoping this year will be even bigger. The whole meaning behind the ride is to show the EMT's, Fire Fighters, and all of the first responders in our own back yards our "Gratitude" and how much we depend on them should we need them. The emergency workers we visited last year appreciated that we recognized the work they do on a daily basis and that we took the time to show them our "Gratitude".  Last year we visited fire stations in Pasco and Hillsborough Counties and extended a hand, and even a hug here and there. We gave out event T- shirts to the staff at each station as a reminder of the event and to show our support. This year we will visit (3) fire stations in Pasco. The planned stations are Blanton, Land O Lakes, and Trinity. This year we will once again have event T-shirts for  the staff at each stop, but will also have shirts for sale for anyone that would like one while supplies last. Pick up points will be announced soon. All proceeds will go directly to Pasco County Fire Departments Benevolent Association. We will also be handing out event plaques at each stop marking the event as a constant reminder to our local hero's how much we care. This year will mark 10 years since the tragic events of September 11, 2001. This is certainly nothing to celebrate, but a time to ban together as a nation as well as a community to salute our local hero's. This is not a fund raiser, nor a poker run, nor a political event. There is no cost to participate, all you need to do is come out and show your support. The departure point will be in Land O Lakes on State Road 54 just east of US 41 between KFC and Bank of America. There will be a brief ceremony at 9:40 and kick stands up at 10:00. We are looking for volunteers to help us organize the event. If you would like to help out please contact me. Please tell a friend or 10, and ask them to come out and join us. More info will be available in the weeks to come. This post will also appear at PascoCountyChoppers.com
