SILVER SPRING, Md. — The Security Industry Association (SIA) will host the 10th annual Ride for Education, which raises money to fund educational opportunities for first-responders, on April 13, immediately following ISC West in Las Vegas.
The one-day trek takes participants through some of the most scenic areas of southern Nevada, including Valley of Fire State Park. While most participants ride motorcycles during the event, sports cars and other vehicles are also welcome.
All net proceeds from the event will go toward the SIA First Responders Scholarship Fund, which provides awards of $1,000 to law enforcement officers and firefighters for job-related education and training.
The registration fee is $40 per person, and passengers, $30. Law enforcement officers, firefighters and military personnel may participate at no charge. Additionally, SIA has arranged for a special rental rate from Las Vegas Harley Davidson. Lunch will be provided to all participants, as will a specially designed “2013 Ride for Education” shirt.
“SIA is proud to be hosting this event to support first-responders,” says Don Erickson, SIA’s CEO. “The ride is a fun, unique way to close out the show and see some breathtaking areas outside of Las Vegas that are not part of the typical ISC West trip, and it’s a great opportunity to help the public safety professionals who partner with our industry to protect us all.”
