CCSO Welcomes Back Brotherhood Riders

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office congratulates all members of the 2011 Brotherhood Ride on their successful journey to Ground Zero.

Sheriff Kevin J. Rambosk attended the Aug. 15 kick-off barbecue at the Waterways clubhouse in Golden Gate Estates in support of 9/11 fallen heroes. The Sheriff purchased a print of the Twin Towers, which he donated to assist in fundraising for the event.

The Brotherhood Ride is an organization of firefighters, police officers and EMS personnel who ride bicycles to honor first responders who died in the line of duty. The organization’s mission is to provide emotional and financial support to the officers' families near the anniversary of their loved one's death.

The 1,000-mile ride began in North Naples on Aug. 20 and ended at Ground Zero in New York on Sept. 10.

The riders and support staff returned to Southwest Florida on Monday.

Congratulations to all.

Never forget.
