I'm a America's 9/11 Ride Participant!

Everyone that rides a motorcycle, has a story to tell, rides for someone or something that they are passionate about. For me, America's 911 Ride encompasses so much. As a young child I lived near Crystal City and National Airport, just outside of Washington DC with my mom. My parents had divorced when I was very young & my dad, grandparents, several Aunts/Uncles and cousins lived in NYC, with several in law enforcement and the military. My mother would put me on a plane and I would make the 45 minute flight solo accompanied only by stewardesses and pilots to spend time with my dad's family. I usually took the window seat and loved the exhilaration of take off/landing and enjoying the views of seeing both the DC/NOVA/MD area and NYC skyline from the air, nighttime views were the best! Was also told to me that my grandmother had asked me if I was scared of flying alone? I simply replied with "No, I guess I'm just a traveling cat!"  During this time my Uncle Thomas Warren, SR was a foreman with NYC Steamfitters Local 638 from the beginning of WTC1 until the completion of WTC2.  I have the memory of being at the top WTC2 at 6 yrs old in 1972/73 with my dad, cousins and Uncle.    

My Uncle, after serving in the US Army with the 101st Airborne Division, worked as a Steamfitter and his sons, Tommy, Jr and Michael both followed in the trade. Michael entered 1st, while Tommy, Jr enlisted in the US Army and served with the 101st Airborne Air Assault before becoming a Steamfitter himself. The three of them were working on 9/11 @ the WTC; and were there as the 1st plane collided and saw the 2nd plane hit!! My Aunt Ellen was watching from Downtown while working in a hospital. They all stayed in the city immediately following the fall of the towers and assisted with the search and rescue alongside 1st responders & other construction workers. In addition, they all participated in cleanup and working at and near to ground zero in the many months to come. Unfortunately, as a result, my Uncle was forced to retire early and live while having to be close to an oxygen tank to breathe for the remainder of his life. He passed away on December 26, 2016. Our family also lost Tommy, Jr on July 13, 2003 after a motorcycle accident, just 1 month after his 40th birthday. The Warrens are the epitome of New York strong and tough. Never backing down, Patriots, honorable with dedication to God, Country and Family. The Warren's also love adventure and all rode motorcycles, including my Aunt Ellen.

Not only do I participate in this ride for our First Responders, but also in memory of those that can not ride anymore, specifically my Uncle and cousin.
My Aunt, now in her 70s, after hearing of this ride from me in June 2022, told me that she wanted to participate and ride into NYC with me! This is the main reason for being a part and having registered to ride originally last year! Last year my bike was in the shop and wasn't ready in time for last year's ride. My Aunt may be in her 70s, but she is going on 50. She is still working, does yoga, practices Tia Chi and hikes among other activities that keep her young and healthy. The fact she wants to participate and ride with me is something I can not; and will not pass up.  My trip will take me from my home in GA to Kansas City, Rapid City and Sturgis SD then on to Sioux Falls, SD for a Zack Bryan concert on August 14th. I will then meet up with America's 911 Ride in Western Ohio on August 17th to proceed on to Shanksville. PA, then the Pentagon on Aug 18th. My Aunt will join me on August 19th in NJ to ride into NYC and we'll finish the morning of August 20th as we'll ride from Times Square to Ground Zero. I can't wait! Total mileage RT is estimated at 4300 miles!
I also ride in memory of those lost suicide and as an Ambassador for #MISSION22. Since the events of 9-11, the war at home on Veteran Suicide is an epidemic that needs our attention and help. Many of our 1st responders have also served in the Military.
If you took the time to read this, I thank you and hope you will give what you can, from $22 to $222 or more! Please share with your friends and family to help spread the word.
To give Honor, Respect, Remember and Never Forget.
I am looking to raise $4300 ($1/mile) for this year’s event and hope that you will be as generous as possible in helping me achieve this goal. All donations are tax deductible as the foundation is a 501 (c) 3.
