Put on the leathers and jump on the hog to raise donations for autism research at the AML Bikers for Charity Ride.
Taking off on Monday, June 13, the ride will start in Rockville Center, NY and wind along the coast to the Montauk Point Lighthouse. The 100 mile ride will raise awareness and donations for autism science.
Volunteer ride organizer Barry Koch has selected ASF as a beneficiary for the second year in a row. This ride has raised thousands of dollars for outstanding charities over the years. “It is an honor to ride in the name of raising awareness about autism. We’re hoping for a big group and to raise lots of money for the cause.”
ASF President Alison Singer will jump on as a passenger to help raise funds, “Am I scared? In a word, YES! But not as scared as I am that we are not funding autism research fast enough,” Singer said. “Having just returned from the International Meeting for Autism Research, I am more optimistic than ever that we are on our way to finding new treatments for autism, but there is still a lot of work ahead of us and we need your help.”
To register for the ride email email@example.com and make a donation to support an individual rider. Remember that many employers have matching-gift programs which can double or triple the impact of a donation. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, ASF is eligible for many matching-gift programs of corporations, foundations and other organizations.
