The Carolina Brotherhood Ride is an annual cycling event made up of firefighters, police officers and emergency medical personnel from the Carolinas (both North and South Carolina).

They ride in the name of their fallen brothers and sisters from the Carolinas. This year they are pedaling close to 600 miles from Moncks Corner SC to Pineville NC over a 6 day period to provide emotional and financial support for the families of those Carolina heroes who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The 2018 ride will honor their Brothers and Sisters lost in the line of duty in 2016. This year they ride for 17 public safety heroes (13 firefighters, 4 law enforcement which includes a police K9). The riders build awareness and appreciation of the sacrifice these extraordinary individuals have made, and seek to honor their memory.
