Sept. 11, 2013

Check out these photos by photographer Julie Ellerton of the Sixth annual Ride to the Flags motorcycle trek from Point Mugu Naval Base to Pepperdine’s Waves of Flags 9/11 Memorial on Sept. 11, 2013.

Singer Pink served as the event’s grand marshal, which was organized to benefit Marine Sgt. James Carey. Carey nearly drowned in a 2009 training exercise and was left paralyzed, blind and with speaking difficulties. The White Heart Organization spearheaded the event and hoped to provide Carey with a wheelchair and rehabilitation funds.
