I am joining over 300 riders - - cycling from Boston to NYC (September 11, 2021 - September 14, 2021) to raise money and awareness for line of duty first responder families, The Tour de Force Memorial Ride.

It is difficult to believe it has been 20 years since our country witnessed ordinary people - like my brother - FDNY Captain VINCENT F. GIAMMONA- doing extraordinary things. I am hopeful with your support, this ride will remind people of the unity and strength we felt as a nation in the days, weeks and months following September 11, 2001. WE saw the very best part of OURSELVES in Vinny and the first responders and we stood together and supported each other, we were extraordinary. 

Today, I am asking YOU to be extraordinary (again).

My goal is to raise awareness for every life taken on September 11, 2001 (2,977excluding 19 terrorists) as well as for every life lost due to 9/11 related illnesses of the FDNY (250+),NYPD (241+) and PAPD's (12+). Their valiant and selfless rescue and recovery efforts are a testament to their integrity and unyielding service to our community.

Every person who donates, will be "riding" with me and Vinny on September 11, 2021 because the name of the person you choose to honor will be on my uniform. Be sure to indicate name of honoree on donation form.

Thank YOU in advance for riding with me and Vinny G. on September 11, 2021.

Please hit the "GIVE NOW" button (upper right) -any major credit card works and it only takes 30 seconds. If you prefer to support by check, no worries, just contact me.

In honor of your brother, Vincent Giammona. I met you around 10 yrs ago… I was running the Tunnel to Towers run in my full US Marshals kit to honor the heroes who gave their life that day… and you stopped me, thanked me and gave me your brother’s silver memorial bracelet. It was such an honor and a moment I have never forgotten. I hope you are well! Good luck on your ride!

Every time I see a picture of Vinny, it reminds me of how much I miss him. He was one of my favorite guys on the Fire Department. I don’t ever remember meeting up with him and not laughing at least three or four times during our conversation. It’s kind of weird because I can’t fully except that he is gone, but to this day I still feel like I’m going to bump into him when I’m on Bell Boulevar
