Big Nick’s Ride For The Fallen Makes Donation to Cape First Responders

YARMOUTH – Big Nick’s Ride for the Fallen, the annual charity event held in honor of former United States Marine Nick Xiarhos, announced that they will be donating $5,000 to the Cape Cod Firefighters/EMS Cancer Relief Fund to help support the brave Cape and Islands area Firefighters and other First Responders battling cancer.

“These firefighters and first responders, they’re always there for us, always, day and night, and it’s time that we do everything we can to be there for them,” said Yarmouth Police Lieutenant and Nicks Father, Steve Xiarhos.

People involved with Big Nick’s Ride for the Fallen are making this donation to stand up to the epidemic of cancer and be there for the men and women who serve the nation and community.

“We know that’s what Nick would want and all of our people that serve, not only in the military but in the firefighting, the police, and the EMS there’s something about them,” Lieutenant Xiarhos continued.

“We as Cape Codders love them and this is a great way to show it.”  

Nick Xiarhos was a resident of Cape Cod who tragically passed away ten years ago while serving in the Marines in Afghanistan.

To honor his legacy and the legacy of other fallen service members, “Big Nick’s Ride for the Fallen” was created, an annual charity motorcycle ride that starts at Barnstable Country Sheriffs Department in Bourne and ends at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School.  

Following the ride there is a BBQ lunch and live music at the School.

The 10th Annual Big Nick’s Ride for the Cape Cod Fallen is set to take place on Sunday, July 21, 2019.
