Welcome Rally for Sandy Hook Team 26 cyclists

Team 26 cyclists, on their way to Washington, D.C., will make a stop in Morristown on their ride from Newtown, CT. Team 26 was formed by Monte Frank, a Newtown resident and father of children who attended Sandy Hook Elementary. He responded to the tragedy by creating a group of 26 cyclists representing the 26 souls who were taken on December 14, 2012. This is the sixth year that these bike messengers are cycling between Newtown and Washington, DC to deliver a message to Washington: Americans want sensible gun laws. Team 26’s goal is to raise awareness of the gun violence epidemic in our nation and urge federal and state governments to pass common sense gun safety legislation. This year, their message to legislators is “ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines and do not arm our teachers!” The public is invited to greet Team 26 when they stop in Morristown on their journey to spread the message that this is the year for change.

Among the speakers will be:

  • Team 26 Cyclists
  • Timothy Dougherty, Mayor of Morristown
  • Tiffany Starr, Survivor and BeSmart Volunteer Lead
  • Morris County Moms Demand Action Volunteers
