CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A 20 day bicycle ride to honor the 411 first responders who lost their lives on 9-11, will soon be arriving in the Lowcountry.

The 4th Annual Brotherhood Ride of first responders will arrive in Charleston at 3 p.m. Sunday.

During the group's layover in the Holy City, three City of Charleston firefighters will join the ride to New York City.

The Brotherhood Ride is a non-profit organization, that consists of firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel. Their mission is dedicated to honoring emergency responders who have died in the line of duty.

In 2007, a group of North Naples Firefighters wanted to honor the nine members of the Charleston Fire department, that perished in the 2007 Sofa Super Store fire. Their desire to help families of these brave professionals resulted in the creation of the Brotherhood Ride.

Each year they honor an unsung hero or heroes from around the country by riding their bicycles from Florida to the heroes home town.

They strive to provide emotional and financial support to the families of those first responders who died in the line of duty as a reminder that the Brotherhood has not and will not forget them.

Stay with ABC News 4 for full coverage of the The Brotherhood Ride's stop in Charleston.
