Motorcycle trip raising money for fallen firefighters

A group of firefighters is riding motorcycles on Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica, Calif., to raise money for a foundation that benefits the families of firefighters who died in the line of duty, reports KSDK-TV in St. Louis.

The trip concludes Aug. 5. The group was in St. Louis on Tuesday.

From the report:

The primary purpose of this trip is to raise funds for the “IAFF Fallen Firefighters Foundation”. The riders will also be promoting a firehouse cookbook titled “Farmington Favorites”, with a portion of the sales being donated to the foundation as well.

The group will be stopping at firehouses along Route 66 and will prepare some of the recipes found within their cookbook for the firefighters.
