William Iaia ( Black and red shirt) and Jay D’Agostino ( Wheaties top) begin the 900 mile charity bike ride from Chicago to Long Island NY. This effort was done to help raise money and bring awareness for children with special health care needs that are medically frail, chronically ill or living with a life threatening illness. These children are in our community , in our hospitals and some in our special homes “Angela’s House”. We are very proud of these two special men who selflessly are giving all they have for these Children.
The night before they started each of their $200 Computers for the bikes that monitor their data malfunctioned. A half hour before the store closed they ran out to buy new ones.
