Wounded vet motorcycle run honors FF Kennedy

Posted: Updated:
EAST BOSTON (WHDH) - Thousands of riders hit the open road Sunday afternoon for the 4th annual Boston Wounded Vet Motorcycle Run, which included a special ride for firefighter Michael Kennedy.

Kennedy, who died in the 9-alarm Back Bay fire in March, took part in the ride every year.

The 40-mile ride through North Shore towns raises money for wounded veterans. It takes about an hour and a half to complete and goes through Everett, Medford, Stoneham, Wakefield, Saugus, Lunn, Revere and East Boston.

The motorcade included about 4,000 members and was led by three convertibles carrying wounded service members.

The ride concluded at Suffolk Downs, where Mayor Walsh spoke.
