ride to rememberSPRINGFIELD, Mass. (wggb) — The Springfield Police Department came together to sponsor the Ride-to-Remember today at the Basketball Hall of Fame.

The event is a fundraiser for the Massachusetts Law Enforcement Memorial to fallen officers. The event precedes a bike ride which will take place in September and spans from Springfield to Boston. The ride will honor fallen officers Kevin Ambrose and Jose Torres.


Those who attended the event got to see the #99 Carl Edwards Aflac NASCAR race car in front of “Coldstone Creamery” and have their picture taken inside the car and those with pets were invited bring their pet dogs (or cats) and have their picture taken inside the police K-9 car for a donation.
