Mechanicsburg, PA (PRWEB) August 5, 2008 -- 'Brothers For Flight 93' travel raising awareness and funds toward the permanent Flight 93 National Memorial and to award scholarships honoring the 40 men and women who gave their lives on Flight 93.
The organization was established by the Hamilton Brothers who began selling their merchandise designs, sponsoring fundraisers and organizing memorial rides to Shanksville, Pennsylvania each year in September to pay tribute to those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
The Brothers 2nd Annual Flight 93 Memorial Ride we be held this year on September 6th, 2008. Many of their biggest supporters are bike enthusiasts including Firefighters, Police Officers & First Responders, however the Brothers encourage everyone who supports their mission to ride with them on September 6th whether they come by car, truck, bike or bus. Registration for the ride is a $40 donation and proceeds go the Flight 93 Permanent Memorial project and Scholarships for Pennsylvania School Children.
The Brothers Memorial Ride will commence from two locations this year, Philadelphia and Central Pennsylvania. Riders from the Philadelphia area will meet at the Philadelphia Prison Complex at 6:30 AM sharp where the Brothers will also be awarding their very first scholarship. "We hope this scholarship will be the first of many we award honoring the 40 men and women that died on Flight 93" states Hamilton, "This is the best way we know how to keep their memory alive."
Riders from the Central Pennsylvania area will be meeting at All Pro Trailer Superstore in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania at 9:00 AM. All Pro proudly donated a new CarMate Trailer in 2007 to the 'Brothers For Flight 93' to help support them in their fundraising missions throughout the year. The trailer is a rolling memorial custom designed to honor all the heroes who gave and lost their lives on Flight 93. Riders from both areas will then meet and join together at the Blue Mountain Rest Area off the Pennsylvania Turnpike to continue the ride onto Somerset County to the Flight 93 Temporary Memorial Site.
Upon arriving in Shanksville, the group will visit the temporary memorial and pay tribute to the fallen heroes of September 11th and Flight 93. The Brothers have made arrangements for overnight accommodations at The Days Inn in Somerset and will also be hosting a barbecue for all supporters that evening.
The Brothers For Flight 93 will also be participating in the upcoming Iron and Steel Motorcycle Run on August 23, 2008 in which Fire Crews from New York City are uniting with the Shanksville Volunteer Fire Company to bring a piece of steel from one of the Twin Towers to Shanksville as a monument. "On the 7th anniversary of September 11th, the worst terrorist attack that the United States has ever seen," states Hamilton "Please say a prayer for the families of those who lost loved ones on that fateful day."
