BENEFITING: Partnership with Children, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 03, 2015
Partnership with Children (PwC) is a Charity Partner for the 2015 TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour. Our team members will be riding to strengthen the emotional, social and academic skills of at-risk children and to help them succeed in school, society, and life.
Held annually the first Sunday in May, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour is America’s largest cycling event. The event provides participants the unique and fun experience to bike through all five boroughs – a 40 mile, traffic-free ride for 32,000 cyclists. Beginning just north of Battery Park, the tour runs up Manhattan, through Central Park, around a brief loop in the Bronx and down to the Queensboro Bridge, passing countless New York City landmarks on the way. After a ride over the Pulaski Bridge, passing through Brooklyn, riders enjoy an incredible view from the lower deck of the Verrazano Bridge to finish the tour.

Partnership with Children works with New York City’s highest-need public schools to ensure that every student can succeed, despite the stress of growing up in poverty. Our specially-trained social workers provide targeted counseling for students and families, and school-wide interventions and strategies for faculty and staff. Working with over 17,000 students in over 40 schools, our program transforms schools into safe, supportive learning environments; increases attendance; and improves academic performance of the hardest-to-reach children. Join Team Partnership with Children and help us make this a reality for all students. Click here for more information on Partnership with Children.
