13th Annual Ride for Missing Children on Friday, May 17, 2013
For the second year Jim Barbato, president of Pride Mark Homes participated in the 100 mile bike ride for Missing & Exploited Children
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 180 pledged bicycle riders or “Friends of Missing Children” that raises funds to support prevention education programs and to remember all missing children.
More than 2,200 children are reported missing in the United States each day, 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.
