Hundreds gathered at the NYS Troopers barracks in Oneida for the 21 annual Ride for Missing and Exploited Children. The mission: “To Make Our Children Safer…One Child At A Time.

Bikers stopped at Staley School in Rome, Harts Hill Elementary in Whitesboro, General Herkimer Elementary in Utica, Barringer Road Elementary in Ilion and Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica.

Donations are accepted and all funds go to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children locally. The money is used to support the missing children poster distribution, community education for the prevention of child abduction and sexual exploitation, and the mission of NCMEC-NY/MV in serving our community here and across New York State.
