Mayor Sarno states, “I want to commend and thank Ride to Remember Director retired SPD Sgt. John Delaney and his team for continuing on with this very important and heartfelt tradition and event to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. My Administration has been a long supporter of this noble cause and working with Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood, Fire Commissioner BJ Calvi and DPW Director Chris Cignoli, we are looking forward to another successful event. This will mark the 9th year of the Ride that started in 2013 to honor the memory of SPD Officer Kevin Ambrose who gave his life protecting a mother and her children during a domestic disturbance. Usually, the Ride to Remember route is from Springfield to Boston, however this year, to honor the brave and dedicated men and women of the Worcester Police and Fire Departments, the Ride to Remember will do a round-trip from Springfield to Worcester.”
