Photo Set #2: Hurricane Fabian Memorial Ride

September 3, 2013

Sunday [Sept 1] saw the Bermuda Long Riders take to the roads in support of the September 5th Foundation’s 10th Anniversary Hurricane Fabian Memorial Ride.

The riders, along with members of the Bermuda Police Service Cycle Squad, gathered at City Hall in Hamilton. They then headed east to Memorial Bench on Kindley Field Road, St. George’s where a short tribute was given by ex Police Commissioner Jonathan Smith as well as the current Commissioner Michael Desilva.

The September 5th Foundation 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.

On September 5th 2003, Constable Stephen Symons, Constable Nicole O’Connor, Station Duty Officer Gladys Saunders and Corporation of Hamilton employee Manuel Pacheco were swept from the Causeway.

This year the first four-year $50,000 educational scholarship has been granted to Stephen Symons Jr, the son of police officer Stephen Symons.

The Foundation works to raise money for the children of those who lost their lives, and this year the first four-year $50,000 educational scholarship has been granted to Stephen Symons Jr, the son of police officer Stephen Symons.
