Brotherhood ride coming through Franklin County next week

                A group called “The Brotherhood Ride” will make its way through Franklin County next week with an overnight stop in Carrabelle.
The Brotherhood Ride is made up of firefighters, law enforcement officers and EMS medical personnel who ride bicycles to honor emergency first responders who have died in the line of duty.
The 2016 ride is being dedicated to 5 Fallen heroes from Florida and one from Georgia who died in the line of duty in 2015.
The group will honor them by biking 80 to 100 miles a day through the state of Florida.
The trip should take a week.
The ride will start in North Naples this Saturday and head through Arcadia, Lakeland, Ocala, Perry, Carrabelle, and Panama City before ending in Fort Walton Beach on July the 29th.
The group will spend one night next week at the Carrabelle Christian center.
The group does take donations which directly benefit the families of those they are honoring.
You can make a donation at their website at

The site also allows you to follow the riders as they travel across the state.
