BENEFITING: OHEL Children's Home & Family Services
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2012
On Sunday, May 6, 2012, I will be biking in the prestigious 2012 TD Five Boro Bike Tour presented by Eastern Mountain Sports. The ride is 40 miles long and travels throughout all five boroughs of NYC. There will be around 32,000 riders with me, about 25,000 oranges served, and more than 10,000 riders per hour on the FDR Drive during “rush hour” peak.
In addition to fulfilling my passion to bike ride, I have also chosen to raise tzedakah for a worthy organization, OHEL Children's Home & Family Services. I will be biking with "Team OHEL." My goal is to raise at least $1,500 by the date of the ride.
OHEL serves communities in New York City, the surrounding boroughs, Northern New Jersey, Southern Florida and worldwide on the web. It deals with foster care, various forms of counseling including family and domestic violence and abuse. Ohel also deals with various housing programs, substance abuse and addiction trouble, and mental health help among others things for people and families in need.
Any donation amount would be appreciated!
