The 9th Annual Remembrance Ride for the victims of Hurricane Fabian was held on Sunday [Sept 2], with riders starting from City Hall and making their way to Ferry Reach.
The Bermuda Longriders rode with a Police escort from City Hall to the Memorial Bench in St. George’s which was erected to honour those lost.
Hurricane Fabian Memorial Ride tributes:
Nine years ago Fabian made a direct hit on Bermuda with wind speeds of over 120 mph [195 km/h], and was the first hurricane to cause a death on the island since 1926.
The event serves to honour the memories of the four people who were swept from the Causeway by Hurricane Fabian on September 5th 2003; Constable Stephen Symons, Constable Nicole O’Connor, Station Duty Officer Gladys Saunders and Corporation of Hamilton employee Manuel Pacheco.
Hurricane Fabian Memorial Ride:
The ride is organised by the September 5th Foundation, a registered charity, which was formed to create an endowment fund to assist in the post-secondary education of the children whose parents and grand-parents were lost during the tragic events of Hurricane Fabian.
The Foundation welcomes further contributions to their cause. Cheques can be made payable to the September 5th Foundation and mailed to the Foundation c/o PO Box HM 530, Hamilton, HM CX.
