Join us with special guest and Master of Ceremonies, Enrique Santos on Saturday, April 1, 2023 at the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Training Facility in Doral, FL for a ride to remember amongst residents, civic leaders, and hundreds of first responders that will be "Riding for the Cause" to bring awareness and hope to individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Sign up and join us with a Rider Ticket or purchase a Donation Ticket and support Autism Awareness!

This unique ride consists of several miles along some of the most beautiful and scenic views of Miami and the City of Doral. There will be two routes, the 12-mile and 40-mile, which will offer a variety of paths for both the experienced rider and those looking to enjoy a relaxed and casual ride. The short, 12-mile ride is a leisure route, paced @12-17 MPH, for ages 18 and over throughout the City of Doral. The extended 40-mile ride is for more experienced cyclists that can ride between 18 to 21 MPH, which takes riders throughout Miami-Dade County. There will be no stop offs so please, come prepared.

Following the conclusion of the rides, cyclists and spectators will have the opportunity for everyone to finish and enjoy an array of delicious tastings from many of our food and dessert vendors. Sponsors and resource vendors will also be onsite post-race.

ABOUT Dade County Association of Fire Fighters Charities (DCAFFC)

Dade County Association of Fire Fighters Charities (DCAFFC) serves to provide the necessary and endless service of assisting our firefighters dealing with many conditions, including financial support for firefighter families and other organizations, to provide therapies and treatments for children who are diagnosed with autism. A portion of the proceeds from this event also supports the University of Miami's efforts to increase awareness and therapeutic treatments!

Unfortunately, many of these services and therapies come at a cost. We rely on the generosity of others through direct donations or support of our charity fundraisers, to accomplish our goals of providing additional support to members and their families diagnosed with autism, as well as other local not-for-profit organizations such as UM/NSU Card and Growing for Inclusion, just to name a few. Since the inception of this charity event in 2019, more than $30,000 has been raised to assist families in financing the therapy and treatments of children with autism.

We thank you for your continued support!
