UTICA, N.Y. – The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children will hold a virtual fundraiser again this year, in place of the annual Ride for Missing Children.

In June of 2020, NCMEC decided to cancel the five individual rides across New York, and instead hold a month-long fundraising effort called ‘Miles for Hope’ in September. More than 1,400 people from 48 states participated in the event.

Organizers hoped they’d be able to resume the ride in 2021, but announced Wednesday they’d hold the ‘Miles of Hope’ fundraiser again to “ensure the safety of all the riders, volunteers, first responders, and spectators.”

Participants can register online to ride, walk, or run, alone or in a small group, during the month of September while raising money for the NCMEC.

Registration will open April 1.
