As we reflect on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, we want to say THANK YOU to all of you who attended RHS’ fifth annual Patriot’s Day memorial event on Sunday, September 11th 2016.
We have so many people to thank. Thank you to each of you who attended the event, and thank you to the individuals and corporations who sponsored tables and gave donations -- you helped us push our fundraising goals beyond our expectations. Thank you to the cadets, band members, singers and volunteers who gave their time to make the event so special. Thank you to our distinguished speakers for your powerful words of honor and hope.
Together we are raising much needed funds for Paws for Patriots, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and the Gold Shield Foundation. Together we remember, honor and support our heroes.
We were honored that so many members of the Tampa Bay community--military, police, first responders, city officials, elected leaders and civilians--attended the 9/11 memorial event. Make sure you visit the 2016 gallery and also check out these beautiful photos taken by Matt Peterson and Christina Di Loretta during the event!
Special thanks for your continued support and generous contributions to Remember, Honor, Support. You make an immeasurable difference to our local heroes and their families. We will be back next year with another fundraising event on September 11th 2017 -- more details to follow.
In the mean-time...

You can pledge to ride for $45 and receive a great event t-shirt. You can also create a team and seek additional donations which you can give through the website.
