We're taking a step towards transforming lives, one wish at a time!
We've formed a team for Make-A-Wish® 48-HOUR RIDE - a unique event where teams of 6 people ride – relay style – continuously for 48 hours to grant life changing wishes to kids with critical illnesses. It’s not a race, but a collective movement to get closer to granting more wishes, one pedal stroke at a time.
Donations to the team rather the individual members will be in Honor of John Bernucci, brother of our team captain, who passed away on June 3, 2023 from complications due to cancer. John would have been proud that money was raised on his behalf to grant children wishes in their times of need. He suffered for 23 years from a major spinal injury that changed his active lifestyle to a passive one constrained to a wheelchair. He definitely knew the positive impact a pleasant distraction from day to day suffering have on the mind.
Make-A-Wish’s goal is to bring every eligible child's wish to life. In 2021, they granted over 900 life changing wishes and over 1000 in 2022. Challenges of the past two years have made it harder to grant wishes. Therefore, there are still a big number of wishes waiting to be granted. These can not be granted without our support and your help!
Our team is uniting to ride together and help make wishes come true. We invite you to make a donation and/or join our team !
We've set an ambitious goal because with your support, we can get there. The money we raise will help bring every eligible child's wish to life, as a wish isn’t just a nice to have, it is essential.
Help us reach our goal, so we can make wishes come true, like Lorie’s!
