What is Stride & Ride Relay
Be An Inspiration Beyond the Finish Line
Stride & Ride Relay is a journey that occurs in October as a way for Veterans, First Responders and citizens to honor, remember and educate individuals about the importance of October 7, 2001, the day of the first deployment in the global war on terror. The Relay also keeps alive the memories of all the individuals who lost their lives, not only on September 11, 2001, but in the subsequent years either due to 9/11 related illness, service related injuries/illness, or the invisible wounds of war; and to show support to those currently serving, our veterans, first responders and their families.
Stride & Ride Relay spans 911 miles from Boston Logan Airports 9/11 Memorial, traversing to Ground Zero in NYC, Flight 93 in Stoystown, PA finishing at the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial. Traversing through Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. Along the route, Our Alumni Ambassadors and Tactical Team will stop at various memorials to pay tribute to those who have given their lives to protect our country and to provide education about the sacrifices our service members and first responders make to ensure our safety and freedom. The Relay consists of running, cycling, motorcycle, and rucking stages.
Stride and Ride Relay epitomizes what Give2Those is all about to do our part to engage citizens and communities in honoring and remembering all the sacrifices made by our military members, first responder and their families; and to empower, encourage, support, and reconnect service members, veterans, first responders and their families with themselves, each other, and their community.
Stride and Ride Relay embodies the hope that those lost will never be forgotten; those still serving, our Veterans, and First Responders will be supported; and to bring America Together United in our Hearts for the Greater Good.
We invite you to take the Challenge and be apart of this exciting journey; by lending your support, joining us at a stage(s), fundraising, donating, sponsoring or helping to spread the word.
