After the events of September 11, Breedlove decided to ride to remember and honor heroes that have fallen in the line of duty -- not only those that fell on September 11, but those that make the sacrifice everyday, in all forms of public service.
The record attempt will raise funds for The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, Inc. ICISF is a non-profit, open membership foundation, dedicated to the prevention and mitigation of disabling stress through the provision of: education, training and support services for all Emergency Services professions.
