The 15th Annual Ride for Missing Children sponsored by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children/NY Regional Office will be held on Friday, May 15, 2015.
More than 200 cyclists will ride 100 miles through Monroe County in honor of National Missing Children's Day. Along the route we will stop at and ride by several area schools in East Rochester, Henrietta, Penfield, Pittsford, Brighton, Irondequoit, Greece and the city of Rochester to bring prevention education messages to children.
Each day 2,200 children are reported missing in the United States. NCMEC/NY assists in the recovery of these children and works to prevent child victimization through prevention education of child abduction, molestation, and sexual exploitation. The mission of The Ride for Missing Children is to:
- Spread awareness about the plight of missing children
- Share abduction and exploitation prevention education materials with children
- Raise funds for agency services
