Dream Ride began as a dream of Michael A. Bozzuto, CEO of Bozzuto's Inc. It started with just a few motorcyclists participating in a benefit ride to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics. Over the years, thousands have joined the mission and helped make it an event that has a profound impact on many lives. In addition to local events planned, Bozzuto and friends will embark on a six-day, 2,000 mile motorcycle ride from Florida to Connecticut and arrive in Farmington on Friday, August 25th. Dream Ride participants will also ride in from multiple states along the Eastern Seaboard and Canada to join in the weekend's festivities.

This year, The Dream Ride celebrates its 17th anniversary. In 2016, the event raised $1.5 million to support Special Olympics; it has raised over $6.2 million since its inception.
