Nina,

Thanks for the note. We're pleased to say this year's ride is *still in progress*, and as mentioned above, we warmly welcome you and other friends of the LAFD to join us this Saturday at the Santa Monica Pier to welcome and congratulate the riders.

Fundraising for this event was performed individually by the riders, yet we're confident that a donation in your Brother's or someone else's honor would be graciously accepted by the related 501(c)3 charity called Code 3 For A Cure.

Thanks for your continued interest in and support of the endeavors of your Los Angeles Fire Department.

Respectfully Yours in Safe and Service,
