First Annual Richard N. Brown Memorial Scholarship Motorcycle Run Set for September 19; Register to Ride Today
Registration begins today for the first annual Richard N. Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund Motorcycle Run, which will be held on Sunday, September 19th, beginning in Watervliet, New York.
The run, organized by late NFFE National President Richard N. Brown’s sister Kimberly Carl, encompasses a 45-mile route throughout the capital region of New York, beginning at the Watervliet Arsenal and ending at Moreau Lake State Park in Ganesvoort. All bikes and automobiles are welcome to participate.
Following the ride, participants are welcome to join the Brown Family for a lakeside cookout at the park pavilion where food and refreshments will be served. Tickets purchased in advance of the event are $25 per rider/driver and $15 per passenger, or $30 dollars on the day of the event. Also, t-shirts and 50/50 raffle tickets will be available for purchase. All proceeds from the motorcycle run will go toward the Richard N. Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund, which provides two $1,000 scholarships each year to NFFE members or their children for furthering their education.
Following Brown’s passing in June of 2009, NFFE partnered with the Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund (FEEA) to dedicate this scholarship in honor of his life’s work in enhancing the well-being of federal employees and their families. This scholarship is intended to ensure that Rick’s legacy of selfless stewardship of federal workers will live on for years to come. If you would like to learn more about Richard N.
