For the past several years, Joe’s Ride has been an integral part of the Olney Days events.
The friends and family of Joe Sanford and the Greater Olney Civic Association have joined together to honor and remember our precious Olney children.
Joe’s Ride helps to recognize and remember all the families in the Olney area who have endured the sorrow of losing a child. Our goal is to ensure that every child, no matter how long or how brief their time on earth was measured, is never forgotten. Joe’s Ride affords us all the opportunity to see and hear their names and to memorialize our precious children.
At the staging area, the Joe’s Ride – Remembering Olney’s Kids banner will be displayed and we invite, encourage, and welcome any family who has lost a child to sign the child’s name on the banner as both a tribute and a memorial. Balloons printed with each child’s name will be released in a brief, yet touching remembrance ceremony at 7:45 a.m. Please contact Betsy or Russ Sanford at 301-519-3835 to discuss how to memorialize a child.
