Ride for Missing and Exploited Children Rolls Through Liverpool
Friday, September 25, 2015 -
The annual Syracuse Ride for Missing and Exploited Children made its way through Liverpool on Friday, September 25, stopping at or riding by several Liverpool Central School District buildings. The video shows LCSD District Office staff cheering on the riders as they made their way through the Bayberry community. Sponsored by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children/New York (NCMEC/NY), the Syracuse Ride for Missing Children is a 100-mile ride, made by bicycle riders or "Friends of Missing Children," that raises funds to support prevention education programs and to remember all missing children. More than 2,000 children are reported missing in the United States each day, some in our own community. For most families, this is only a brief scare as the child turns up in a few minutes or hours. But for some, the nightmare of a missing child becomes a grim reality. NCMEC's mission is to help recover missing children, protect all children from sexual exploitation, and assist in the prevention of these crimes.
