To my loyal ride supporters,
Like so many of you, my ride committee and I were deeply affected by the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy on Long Island. To see so many brave Long Islanders so desperately in need touched us all. I was not surprised to see so many Strong Island heroes stepping up and helping others.
Seeing this need in my own “backyard” so to speak, made me realize that even without Sandy, there is so much work to be done right here at home. To that end, I decided, after 10 years of raising money for the March of Dimes on Long Island (and 14 years of MOD work all over the country), that I wanted to change the cause that I rode for, and start raising money to help our friends and neighbors in need.
