Police Captain James Hasson will join many bicyclists participating in this year's Tour de Force 9/11 Memorial Bike Ride.
This will be Hasson's fourth time participating in the four-day bike ride that begins at Ground Zero in New York City on September 8th and ends at the Pentagon on September 11th.
"A lot of people in the bike ride not only lost comrades, but family members. That one catastrophic event changed peoples lives forever," said Hasson.
Hasson said he will be riding with Michael Kineavy, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino's Chief of Policy, and Lt. Chris Hamilton, from district E-7 out of East Boston.
Tour de Force is an official non-profit organization that holds cycling events, "to raise funds, to benefit the families of police officers, who were killed in the line of duty, each year, nationwide, making the ultimate sacrifice."
