Forever Family Ride
because every child
deserves a forever family
2020 - A Ride To Remember - A Message From Craig Secher
It was wonderful to see everyone out enjoying the Forever Family Ride this Labor Day weekend. Seeing so many riders out to give hope of a better tomorrow for the children we serve was truly inspiring. Thank you to those of you who shared the routes you enjoyed from Estes Park, Horsetooth reservoir , the Poudre Canyon to Happy Jack road and beyond. I have heard wonderful stories of good times with friends and so many of our ride stop partners have shared their thanks for everyone stopping in to say hi and letting them know they were riding for children in need.
And although the Forever Family ‘Pandemic’ Ride didn’t allow us to gather - I feel we all experienced a unique ride that in its own way brought us together. In addition to riding through a pandemic together most of us rode through the smoke of the wildfires that turned the color of our skies to something we will never forget. I am excited to share that together we have raised just over $14,000 on this year’s Ride for direct services for children that are going through the healing process of abuse and neglect and awaiting their Forever Family.
To those of you who chose to ride the ride that changes lives in spite of the pandemic and health restrictions - Thank You! I look forward to the day we can all ride together again soon – until then stay safe, be kind and thank you for making every mile help a child!
Thanks to our 2020 sponsors!

"Why I Ride"
“In the entire world, you will not find a more diverse, interesting, and enjoyable gathering of people, who ride to help abused and at-risk children. I look forward to seeing all of my friends at the Forever Family and Realities Ride every year. Thank you, Realities for Children!”
Sean Dougherty- RE/MAX Alliance of Northern Colorado
“Why wouldn’t I ride! It is for our most precious commodity-the children. And when we all ride together it helps to not only raise emergency support, but also to raise awareness of the very real issue of child abuse in our community. With all our love to our children.”
Pam Rogge- Harley Owners Group
“More than a journey, an incredible riding experience with people from all walks of life dedicating their financial support to help abused and neglected children – Thank you Forever Family Riders!”
Angela Mead– Deputy Division Manager Children, Youth, and Family Services
“These children need our love and support and we are here to give it to them in any way possible. We will continue to ride in the Forever Family Ride and do our part for as long as it takes to end child abuse. Consider us their guardian angels-watching over them for as long as they need us!”
Rob Rogge- Harley Owners Group
“The Forever Family Ride is an event my wife and I look forward to every year. We support Realities for all the hard work and dedication the team gives to help our local children that have been abused, neglected or who are at risk in Northern Colorado.”
