"Ride of Valor”, first-ever national grass roots effort to honor the 40 Heroes of Flight 93 through a series of community based motorcycle rides across the nation, is encouraging the public to honor the Flight 93 heroes by participating online ‘In Spirit’ for the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
Ride of Valor provides an opportunity for individuals to honor the heroism and sacrifice of the 40 passengers and crew of United Flight 93, who stopped a planned attack by terrorists on Washington, D.C., and most likely the U.S. Capitol building saving thousands of lives.
Individuals can participate as a ‘Spirit Rider’ from the comfort of their own home for as little as $10, as well as at symbolic levels of $40 and $93. For a contribution of $40 or more, a commemorative Ride of Valor certificate will be sent.
Proceeds from Ride of Valor go to the completion of the permanent Flight 93 National Memorial in conjunction with the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation. The Flight 93 National Memorial is the only one of the three memorials to the 9/11 attacks that is still seeking some $10 million in contributions from individual donors for completion of additional planned features.
“Anyone can be a ‘Spirit Rider’, even families and kids” said Debby Borza, a principal Ride of Valor organizer and mother of Flight 93 passenger Deora Bodley.
Ride of Valor especially provides the many thousands of motorcyclists who have faithfully visited the temporary memorial over the years since 2001 an opportunity to pay tribute to the 40 heroes and to help complete the permanent memorial,” she added.
“We are really hopeful many will find this occasion of the tenth anniversary of Flight 93 to honor the heroes by registering as a ‘Spirit Rider’ at http://www.RideofValor.com,” Borza added.
Businesses and corporations can also register as ‘Spirit Riders’, as well as additional opportunities to support completion of the Flight 93 National Memorial through Ride of Valor.
