I am riding in the 5 Boro NYC Bike Race on May 1st. I need to raise $1000 before then. One hundred percent of the funds raised will go to help after school athletic programs for youth in Brooklyn. So, why am I doing this you may ask. Well, for starters, I spend every weekend at home so I now need to get out of the house more and meet new people. Second, it's for a great cause. Parents are working now more than ever and kids come home to an empty house. These programs give students a place to learn sports. Third, I won two free nights in a NYC hotel which expires this year,.and fourth, I've always wanted to see NYC so now I'll see if first hand while biking, for an excellent cause. If you give, it will help me out a lot.
