Thousands of spectators watch CT United Ride to honor 9/11 victims

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of spectators lined the streets in Fairfield County Sunday for the 19th annual CT United Ride, an event dedicated to remembering those who lost their lives in the 9/11 terror attacks.

More than 2,000 motorcycles embarked on a 60-mile trip covering 10 Connecticut towns, starting in Norwalk and ending in Bridgeport.


CT United ride is Connecticut's largest 9/11 tribute and raises money for Connecticut fire and law enforcement agencies.

The opening ceremony included "Amazing Grace" performed by the Connecticut state firefighters Pipe and Drum Corps., a patriotic moment of silence and a special recognition of New Haven Police Captain Anthony Duff.

The event honors those who lost their lives on 9/11 and for those who continually put their lives on the line each and every day.
