The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is hosting the second annual Ride for Missing Children in Austin, Texas on May 17th, 2019! All funds raised go to help missing & exploited children in Texas. Here is some info about the ride:
The Ride for Missing Children exists to honor all missing and exploited children, and raises funds to support education programs that help prevent child abduction and child sexual exploitation.
This 30-mile, police-escorted ride starts at the Texas State Capitol and ends at Scholz Garten. Register now for only $25.
What is unique about this charity ride?
- Cyclists fundraise for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Texas Office, which goes to education prevention awareness.
- The ride is done at a comfortable team pace.
- The riders are escorted by local law enforcement, which means traffic is halted.
- Riders visit elementary schools along the route to greet children and offer information to raise awareness. The visits are electric, as hundreds of children and adults cheer the riders as they enter the school grounds. Most riders say this is the most gratifying aspect of the ride.
