For 18 years, the Ride For Life has conducted its annual 12 day power wheelchair journey across Long Island into Manhattan, stopping to visit schools who fundraise and business supporters along the way. Not only does the event bring awareness and education on its journey, but funds and donations are collected to fund our many programs. 50% is donated directly to research every year. 42% is used for patient services. These include mobility grants where we loan out power wheelchairs, ramps and handicap vans, Care For Life (CFL) grants to provide nursing respite to families and Plan For Life (PFL) grants to provide legal assistance. 8% is used for awareness and education on ALS.
