Riding for a Great Cause

Monday, May 11th, 2015

2014FSRideTeamPhoto_sWe are honored to be the Corporate Luminary Sponsor of the 2015 Ride for Missing Children-CNY. This is our 6th year as Luminary Sponsor, as this is a noble cause we’re very proud to support. The Ride for Missing Children is the biggest annual fundraiser for the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children – Mohawk Valley Office.

At the Mohawk Valley office, missing children alerts are received, and printed posters of missing children are sent out to specific geographic areas in the United States, Canada and Mexico, aiding the effort to recover missing children. Throughout the year, they conduct educational programs at schools and other educational facilities across New York State, as a way to prevent children from going missing. They also offer all-important hope and healing to families of missing children.

This year, 6 Volunteers and 10 Riders are representing First Source in the Ride. Above and beyond our Luminary sponsorship, our Corporate Riders raise additional funds on their own to support the Center.

Our corporate sponsorship, along with all corporate sponsorships for the Ride, are an invaluable source of underwriting for the Ride. They allow all Rider fundraising to directly benefit the Center’s mission of education and poster distribution.

We are honored to be a true partner of The Ride For Missing Children, helping to “Make our children safer…One child at a time.”

The Ride will be passing our New Hartford branch around 12:25 p.m. Friday, and we invite you to join us to cheer them on!

Why We Ride: Tom Neumann

TNeumann_7941_cropsm“I am riding for my 4th year and volunteering on the Steering Committee for my 3rd year. I come back every year because I believe in their mission. It’s an amazing group, and I’ve seen first-hand the impact our efforts have on the affected families, school children, and the Center.

The most touching experience for me was meeting the Spierer family last year. They had lost their daughter less than a year before, and it was the first time I met a family that close to an abduction. Their strength and appreciation was amazing. We thanked them for giving us a deeper understanding of what a family goes through, and they could not express just how thankful they were for all the support from us, and for the hope that all our efforts could bring their child home and prevent another family from having to go through the same experience.”

Throughout the year First Source contributes our time and financial resources to many worthy causes. This season we make a special appeal for the Ride For Missing Children-CNY, an annual 90+/- mile bicycle journey to raise funds and awareness for the plight of missing and exploited children. We are proud to be the Corporate Luminary Sponsor again, and equally proud that we have 8 Riders and 5 volunteers from Team First Source among the hundreds that will ride and volunteer this year. Learn more about the Ride, other riders and how we help to bring missing children home here.

Why We Ride: Liz Crane

Liz Crane is part of Team First Source and will be raising funds and riding in this year’s Ride For Missing Children. Here’s why Liz decides to ride:

Liz Crane of Team First Source

“I have been participating in the Ride for three years, and each time it is more meaningful. The first time I rode into a school, when I saw and heard the kids cheering, the school bands playing and the banners flying, I thought, why are they doing this for us? We are doing this for them!

After all the hard work of training, fundraising and riding 100 or so miles, knowing the purpose of why we ride and spread awareness of our mission really brings out so many emotions that day, but when I see those precious kids, I cry every time!”
