The Security Industry Association (SIA) is gearing up for its 10th annual Ride for Education – an event held in conjunction with ISC West (April 10-12) that helps raise money to fund educational opportunities for first-responders.
According to a SIA press release, the Ride for Education is a “one-day trek that takes participants through some of the most scenic areas of southern Nevada, including Valley of Fire State Park. This year’s ride is scheduled for Saturday, April 13, the day after the conclusion of ISC West. While most participants ride motorcycles during the event, sports cars and other vehicles are also welcome. Lunch will be provided to all participants, as will a specially designed ‘2013 Ride for Education’ shirt.”
The net proceeds from the event will go to 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 release states.
The registration fee for the event is $40 per person ($30 if riding as a passenger), and you can register at www.siaonline.org/ride. SIA has arranged for a special rental rate ($125) from Las Vegas Harley Davidson.
Law enforcement officers, firefighters and military personnel may participate at no charge, the release states.
