What exactly is the Ride for Missing Children?
Sponsored by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children/New York (NCMEC/NY), the Ride for Missing Children is a 100-mile ride made by over 150 pledged bicycle riders or “Friends of Missing Children” that raises funds to support prevention education programs and to remember all missing children. More than 2,000 children are reported missing in the United States each day1, some in our own community. For most families, this is only a brief scare as the child turns up in a few minutes or hours. But for some, the nightmare of a missing child becomes a grim reality. NCMEC’s mission is to help recover missing children, protect all children from sexual exploitation, and assist in the prevention of these crimes.
