Paramedic Doug Gladstone rides to honor fallen EMS workers
Largo, Fla. (June 16, 2017)
When Doug Gladstone participated in his first National EMS Memorial Bike Ride in 2011, he was a casual rider who had never entered an organized event.
But despite his inexperience, the Largo resident and Sunstar paramedic decided to enter the Muddy Angels event, a 500-mile ride from Boston to Arlington, Virginia, designed to celebrate the lives of EMS workers who have become sick or injured or have died in the line of duty, in honor of a coworker who died from a head injury.
