Hosted by the NYC Punishers Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club for the Forest Hills Volunteer Ambulance Corps, this Motorcycle Ride is a NYC permitted PARADE in remembrance on the 18th Anniversary of those who served, protected, volunteered and lost their lives that tragic day. All bikes welcome! Sport bikes, foreign & domestic bikes, trikes, side cars, choppers, home-made bikes, and anything that would require a DOT Motorcycle license.
On 9/11 one of those lost was Richard Allen Pearlman, the youngest first responder lost that day. He joined the Forest Hills Ambulance Corps at the age of 14 as a Junior Corps member and excelled in the position of Dispatcher and at 18 joined the Senior Corps. Richie headed to the WTC on foot from his job at a law firm and was ordered back to his job by his employer for safety reasons, but remained at the WTC site. A picture on pages 16-17 in Newsweek's Extra Edition of America Under Attack shows Richie aiding the injured. He was only 18 years old. We have named the ride in his honor, "Run For Richie".
