The run raises funds to assist the families of First Responders; police, fire, EMTs, and military seriously injured or killed in the line of duty
This years annual First Responders run was dealt back-to-back hardships. There was a big rain out and a Covid-19 surge; both negatively affected fund raising for the event. A generous donor came forward covering the registration costs for run registrants.
Registration is from 8-9:30. Even though the ride is free, we need riders to sign the disclaimer. We will kick off around 10-10:30 depending on how fast we can move.
The run starts in Paramus, NJ at the VFW, located at the corner of routes 4 West and 17 North. It covers about 50 miles of scenic routes and then ends back in Paramus. There will be food and soft drinks available from local restaurants including Sabrett hot dogs, pizza, etc. A fantastic highlight of the run is a chance to win an autographed football donated to the event by the New York Giants football team. This alone makes registering for this event worth your participation. There will also be 50/50 raffles and drawings for Jersey Mikes gift certificates.
The proceeds go to help fallen and seriously injured First Responders in the line of duty, including police, fire fighters, EMTs, and military personnel. Past checks have been to a Jersey City detective murdered by urban terrorists, the eight-year-old daughter of a Bergen County Green Beret killed in combat, and the family of a Rockland County volunteer firefighter killed while trying to save residents of a senior citizens facility. These are just a few of the many this run has been able to help, please help them help our heroes’ families.
Responders Run also donates annually to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and the Disabled American veterans.
The organization is incorporated as a non-profit and has been awarded a 501(c)3 by the IRS.
