Rock The Ride for Gun Violence Prevention

Community members and many others will walk and ride together for gun violence prevention on August 20 at Rock The Ride North Shore.

Rock The Ride was established in 2018 in the aftermath of a mass shooting in Yountville, California, when Congressman Mike Thompson and Ride Napa Valley Event Producer Rebecca Kotch wanted to find a way to use their voices to say “enough” to gun violence. The annual ride is also a way to raise funds for organizations that are supporting those impacted by gun violence or dedicated to gun violence prevention. Rock The Ride North Shore will include a 25-mile ride, a 12-mile ride, and a 3-mile walk.

After six years in Napa, California, Rock The Ride is coming to the North Shore and will honor the victims and survivors of the Highland Park shooting. Congressman Brad Schneider, Rebecca Kotch and Highland Park resident Pam Faulkner are spearheading the effort to produce the event, which will benefit the Highland Park Community Foundation (HPCF) and two national organizations, the Giffords Law Center and Moms Demand Action/Every Town for Gun Safety.
