Every year, the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride's "Fallen Angels Fund" raises money to provide support and aid to the families, especially the children of fallen EMS practitioners , EMT's and Paramedics lost in the line of duty.  There is a $350 registration fee that every rider has to pay in order to participate in the ride, plus a minimum $250 donation to the fund.  All funds raised by the registered bike riders and support personnel go directly to the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride fun and are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!!!   

This year's ride starts on May 17 in Boston, Massachusetts and ends on May 23 in Alexandria, Virginia for a total of 550 miles.  The schedule for this year is as follows:    

     May  18 (Day 2) - Southbridge, MA to Waterbury, CT              

     May 19 (Day 3) - Waterbury, CT to Tarrytown, NY  

     May  20 (Day 4) - Tarrytown, NY (thru NYC) to Newtown/Yardley, PA

     May 21 (Day 5) - Newtown/Yardley, PA to Lancaster/Lititz, PA          

     May 22 (Day 6) - Lancaster/Lititz, PA to Towson/Baltimore, MD        

     May 23 (Day 7) - Towson/Baltimore, MD to Alexandria, PA                                                                                       

In 2011, I rode for 3 very special people that we had lost in Onslow County - Knute Mlott, Allen Pate, and my sister-in-law, Anne Parker, along with the 21 EMS practitioners that died in the Line of Duty throughout the country that year. In 2012, I rode again for the 23 EMT's and Paramedics that died in the Line of Duty throughout America during past year.  You always hear of all the police and firefighters that die in the line of duty, which is way too many and so tragic, but it is truly surprising to see that you never hear of all the EMS practitioners that are also lost each year. 

This year there are already 25 EMT's and Paramedics that have died in the Line of Duty this year.  That is way too high a number!    I'm asking for your support so that I can honor all EMS workers that have died this past year.  There are 3 ways to help me reach my goal:       

#1  - You can go to the Muddy Angels National EMS Memorial Bike Ride - www.muddyangels.org and click on the "support the ride" logo on the right side of the web page.  Please add my name to the "who you are donating for" line.       

#2 - You can also send a check made out to the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride (NEMSMBR) with my name in the memo line.  You can mail the check to me at my home and I will turn it in on the first day of the ride.  Please send to Judi Costa, 220 Petteway Drive, Jacksonville, NC  28540      

#3 - If you would like to donate directly to me to help cover the trip expenses, that is also greatly appreciated.  It will cost approximately $2000 to participate in the ride.  Please contact me directly by email (copndoc2@embarqmail or copndoc@gmail.com) or phone (910-389-6020), or you can mail a check to me at the address above.  Some of the trip expenses will be gas to get to Boston, MA, hotels to stay in each night of the ride, and food during the trip.   

Any amount that you can give to support my grand effort will be greatly appreciated.  I spent 5 years as a volunteer EMT for Haws Run Rescue Squad and almost 21 years as a Paramedic with Onslow County EMS.  I was fortunate to get out alive, with my body and mind intact, but there are so many that haven't.  Please help me honor those that have died in the Line of Duty this past year.  Thank you for your donation and support!  God Bless!
