The ride was first started right after the attacks as a way to raise money for first responders in New York and it has grown since then.
“Any money that we raise today goes to the CT Firefighters Relief Fund [and] the 100 Club of CT on behalf of law enforcement,” explained Connecticut United Ride Executive Director Fred Garrity Jr. “We also make a donation to United Way which keeps in true to our first event.”
The ride is the largest 9/11 event in Connecticut as well as the largest motorcycle ride in New England.
