The KC Guns 'N Hoses Benefit Ride is a police escorted ride that takes place annually on the first Saturday of June. This benefit ride is to raise money to help Kansas City metro firefighters and police officers families who are in need financially due to unforeseen medical and health expenses. Guns 'N Hoses is a non-profit organization and the ride is open to the public. The registration fee includes the police escorted ride, ride bag, ride t-shirt for the first 500, a meal, music, vendors, drawings, live auction and plenty of fun.

The ride is an opportunity for many police and fire to come together with the community in taking care of those who protect and serve us in the metro area. This event is made possible through sponsorship dollars. The Guns 'N Hoses organization would greatly appreciate your involvement and participation to help make this charity ride a successful event.
