    Cluett Schantz Memorial Park, MiltonWilliam Iaia & Jay Dagostino Bill and Jay took a bite out of Marlborough, when they stopped for an energy break with a fresh picked apple (at the Heart of the Hudson Valley Farmers Market. or a near by farmers market),It was one of their many stops of the pasted three days. These Long Islanders began their journey on Wednesday, August 6th by flying to Niagra Falls to begin a four day charity bike ride back to Long Island to help raise awareness and funds for Angelas House. They did this to honor children with special care needs that are medically frail, technology dependent, chronically ill or living with a life threatening illness. ATDC and Angelas House assist families caring for medical fragile children living at home with their parent or in special homes that offer 24 hour nursing support.
    Jay says that he sees how these families struggle with the day to day efforts needed to support these children. This struggle in many cases continues to a year to year effort which can be difficult on a family. Jay feels the difficulty of this ride is nothing compared to what the families do week to week, year to year. The bike shirt were be worn throughout the ride,
