As most of you know, I've been volunteering with the reading program: Bedtime Stories with the children at the Jackson Ave Family Assistance Shelter in the South Bronx for the past 10 years. For the past 5 years I have been riding in honor of these bright, fun loving, warm children at Jackson Avenue. I ride to raise money for the recreation programs at the shelter. Money raised enables the kids to particpate in such activities as swimming lessons, educational field trips, art and dance classes. and the opportunity to attend summer camps. Please consider sponsoring me for this ride for the children. Thank you all for being so generous all these years.

BronxWorks is once again this year a charity partner in the TD Five Boro Bike Tour, America’s largest cycling event. On Sunday, May 3rd, 2015, 32,000 people will ride over 40 miles of car-free streets through all 5 boroughs in New York City. The money raised through this event will support children’s programs at our shelters for homeless families.
With YOUR support, the children living temporarily in our 3 residences for homeless families will have happier days during the challenging times their families are facing. The stress of homelessness affects children in a profound way, impacting their physical and mental health, school performance, and overall development. Recreational and educational activities expand their world beyond the daily challenges of being homeless and can counteract some of the negative impacts. Please join us. Together, we can bring joy to the lives of these children and their families.
