Tully Rinckey donated $1,000 in support of the 2008 Greater Capital District Ride for Missing Children. The event honors the memory of missing children and aims to increase public awareness of the plight of all missing and exploited children and the need for child safety education.
During the event, a unified team of bicyclists rides for 100 miles escorted by New York State Police. The riders stop at schools along the way to educate on child safety and abduction prevention through awareness programs.
The event is sponsored by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, whose mission is to help prevent child abduction and sexual exploitation, find missing children, and assist victims of child abduction and sexual exploitation, their families and the professionals who serve them.
“With several attorneys at our firm serving as certified attorneys for the child in New York State, we often see first hand the ongoing results of abuse and neglect,” said Greg Rinckey, managing partner of Tully Rinckey PLLC. “An event like the Ride is so important to furthering awareness of the need of families in the Capital Region.”
The event culminates in a closing ceremony today at the Empire State Plaza.
The funds raised go directly towards missing child poster distribution, educational programs, case management, and the mission of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Regional Office in Mohawk Valley.
