Ride to Remember 2018: Philidephia to Washington DC
The Team Jesse Foundation and The Moyer Foundation are pleased to officially partner for the 2018 Ride to Remember. Taking place September 9 - 11 and spanning 180 miles from Philadelphia to Baltimore to Washington D.C., the Ride to Remember 2018 will honor and remember fallen soldiers and raise funds to support the families they left behind.
The original "Ride" began as a cross country bicycle trip of 4,200 miles over 95 days to commemorate SSG Jesse Williams as well those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Inspired by the families met along the journey and the positive impact remembrance had on their communities, the Team Jesse Foundation launched the Ride to Remember program in 2013, with an emphasis on connecting directly with local families to tell their loved one’s stories. Since the program’s inception, a total of 9 Ride to Remember events have taken place, raising more than $60,000, and connecting with and providing support to 12 families of fallen soldiers as well as children from military families who have attended The Moyer Foundation’s Camp Erin and Camp Mariposa.

The mission of The Team Jesse Foundation is to provide education and support for families of fallen soldiers, primarily by raising money through awareness and events. All funds raised go directly to families of fallen soldiers, to nonprofit groups suggested by families and to camps offering outdoor experiences and support services for children of military personnel.

The mission of The Moyer Foundation is to provide comfort, hope and healing to children and families affected by grief and addiction. Our innovative resources and programs address the critical needs of children experiencing powerful, overwhelming and often confusing emotions associated with the death of someone close to them or substance abuse in their family. No child should have to face these struggles alone, and our unique programs bring kids together to ease their pain and provide the tools to help restore hope.
