This event is June 26th - this Saturday. Please help!

I have been roped in by a family member to help with photos for the 5th Annual Fallen Hero's Memorial Ride which pays respect to soldiers, police officers and fire fighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty. All benefits made, go to help the families who have lost loved ones.

Unfortunately their group photographer who used to handle this event has passed away recently and they don't have a photographer. I am volunteering my services free of charge. I unfortunately do not have any experience for this type of shoot (scared I can't be in all places to capture everything). The ride is going to be moving from Plainfield to downtown to the Police & Fire memorial and asked that I capture the whole migration. The state police will be providing a police escorted motorcade for the event.

I wanted to see if some of my fellow IPC photogs would want to participate in this event (and help me not go crazy). I was thinking if there is more than one photog then we could be at different locations to catch the entire ride.

I have more information I can pass on if you are interested. Or if you can pass on any helpful tips - I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for any help!

Well? Are you still breathing? How did it go?

I AM still breathing and it turned out to be a LOT of fun but there is no way I could have done it without help. BIG thanks to Serge Melki and Elisabeth Smith for chipping in! Watch for their photos to see how the event turned out.
