More than 115 so-called "Muddy Angels” bicycle riders are expected to convene at Danbury Hospital as they journey from Boston via Newtown and Danbury to Washington D-C. Emergency Services Director Matthew Cassavechia says the national EMS memorial bike ride honors emergency medical services personnel who serve every day, those who became ill or injured while performing their duties and those who have died in the line of duty.
Western Connecticut Health Network President and CEO Dr John Murphy, along with the Hospital’s Chairman of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Pat Broderick will welcome riders. The riders will be given lunch, have a chance to rest and tour the new emergency room that's being constructed.
They will be escorted by Danbury Police and Danbury Hospital Ambulance as they arrive and leave toward the New York State border. The group will be moving through the area from 11:30am to 1pm.
