Ride To Remember for Keith

Helping build a brighter future for our

Police, Fire & EMS Family!

The America's 9/11 Ride is about

Remembering the Heroes, Volunteers and Victims

who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and since.

(Our Annual Memorial Ride takes place in August respecting each site and the survivors, allowing them to mourn during September)

Team 8001 – Remembering Keith
We are riding in this year’s 2012 America's 9/11 Ride to honor our brother Lt. Keith Fairben, NYP EMT-P!

For each member of New York Chapter 43 of the Red Knights, participation in this memorial event has always been a moving experience and supporting the cause is our honor. Not only are we privileged to be saying “Thank You” to our First Responders, we are rising to honor our own hero Lt. Keith G. Fairben.

Keith was on duty as a paramedic for New York Presbyterian Hospital on the morning of 9/11/01 and was one of the very first units to arrive that morning at the scene. He and his partner Mario Santoro were instrumental in assisting quite a few people escape from the towers that morning and they both lost their lives valiantly working to bring another person to safety.

The riders from New York Chapter 43 of the Red Knights are looking to honor Keith’s memory by raising $15,000 for this year’s event. We trust and hope that you will consider being as generous as possible in helping our chapter achieve this goal.

All donations are tax deductible as the foundation is a 501(c)3 charity.

Please support us as we ride to remember and honor our fallen brother.

Many of our members have been participating on this event for many years without soliciting donations or asking for sponsorships. This year, we decided to band our resources and raise some funds to honor the Heroes and Victims from the terrible attacks on this great county on 9/11 and to help raise funds for a great organization.

I know you get asked to donate to many worthwhile causes but the America’s 911 Foundation is very special. Every dollar does make a difference, the foundation has no paid staff or board, it is entirely run by volunteers. The last audit shows that more than 90% of funds received are utilized supporting First Responders, their departments and families. Funds from this event go to our college scholarship program for graduating seniors of First Responders (Paid or Volunteer). It also provides equipment to First Responder Departments and funds National Volunteer Emergency Team (NVET) abilities. Please help me assist in this wonderful cause. Donating online is safe, secure and easy. The foundation will send you a receipt for your generosity.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
