From Walter from Kickstart Cycle Supply "In 1989 my friend Gene started Road Recovery
which is a nonprofit that does recovery and outreach for at risk kids. They help a lot of people and they need funds to keep up the good work. To that end we are getting involved with this ride they set up for Saturday, June 24th."
About the ride:
We will be meeting at Bergen County Harley Davidson
at 9 am. There will be complementary coffee and bagels available while you sign up for the ride. Kickstands up at 10 am for the long way up to the Graham School Campus in Hastings on Hudson, NY through some of the best motorcycle friendly roads on the east coast. (Approximately 100 mi) Once there you can find out more about the school while enjoying a catered lunch. After that itâ€™s a quick ride back to BCHD for some well deserved ice cream.
The goal of the ride is to bring a message of hope to the young ladies and young men residing at the Graham School through a demonstration of unity and support through the assembly of motorcyclists along with hearing their inspirational life stories of struggle to triumph. The tax deductible donations raised will allow Road Recovery to reach more and more young people through their at-risk youth programs and community outreach events.
How can you help:
We have set up a CROWDRISE
page to make it very easy and convenient for you to donate. You can also donate the day of the ride as well. Suggested donations will be at the Sign up.
