The Second Annual PA EMS Memorial Bike Ride from the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA to Harrisburg, PA will take place on September 9, 10 and 11th, 2017.

Join the Pennsylvania EMS Provider Foundation as we pedal our bicycles in remembrance of Pennsylvania EMS Providers. This ride will start in our National Park of the Flight 93 Memorial and end 147 miles later on the steps of the State Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg.

September 11t: PA EMS Memorial Service and the Foundation's Star of Life Dinner. The events of the day honor our the past, present and future of EMS.

We honor past: the lives of our EMS family who lost their life in the line of duty.
We honor the present: outstanding providers from YOUR agency.
We honor the future: Two very deserving grant recipients will finish their paramedic training program

Does your service have an outstanding provider?
Does your service have a provider who exemplifies EMS in your community?
Would you like to honor someone for their years of dedication?

Reward them with tickets to this dinner and recognition as a Pennsylvania Star of Life.

The nomination form is attached. Although the form says nomination, the process is simple. Send us the information on your outstanding providers along with their registration for the dinner and they WILL be honored during the award ceremony and receive the star of life award.

Did you know that the Foundation has awarded over $30,000 in grants to EMTs who wish to become paramedics? Your support, sponsorship and attendance at these event helps this important cause as well as to raise the level of awareness of the importance of EMS!

Our keynote speaker is Raphael Barishansky, Deputy Secretary for Health Planning and Assessment and acting Bureau of EMS Director. The registration form is attached and will also be mailed to your organization.


Please feel free to share this email with any of your colleagues and encourage them to join us!

Hoping to see you on the 11th.
