When I was in High School in 1993, an adorable little girl was abducted less than 3 miles from my home. This was an outrageous crime in a sleepy little New York town!
To raise awareness of this heinous crime, a group of 7 courageous bicyclists rode to Washington DC to raise awareness and preach children's safety along the way, arriving in DC on May 25th, the first National Missing Children's Day.
12 years later, over 400 riders, like us on Indium's team, ride 100 miles every May to commemorate this ride and to raise funding for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which works hand-in-hand with Law Enforcement to spread knowledge of and retrieval of missing kids. We will always wear pink and blue in remembrance of that little girl, back in 1993 that was never found.
Our mission is "to make our children safer...one child at a time". We have helped reunite 3000 of over 4600 missing children in 2008 with their parents and loved ones!
