Y'all go check out my boy Tim Perkins' fundraising page for the 2012 National EMS Memorial Bike Ride.
The Muddy Angels will be riding during EMS Week this year, from Boston, MA to Alexandria, VA. Their mission:
The National EMS Memorial Bike Ride, Inc. honors Emergency Medical Services personnel by organizing and implementing long distance cycling events that memorialize and celebrate the lives of those who serve everyday, those who have become sick or injured while performing their duties, and those who have died in the line of duty.
The vision of the NEMSMBR is to see recognition of EMS as a profession, a reduction in debilitating injuries and LODD in EMS and a national EMS accountability system. It is our hope that these events will focus attention on the accomplishments of all EMS personnel, and educate the community at large about the need for improved safety standards, injury prevention, disability tracking and death benefits for EMS personnel and their families.
It's a worthy cause. Drop by and donate whatever you can, please. Every little bit helps.
