A Ride To Remember
On April 6, Junior Committee members and friends attended the Junior Committee’s 4th annual Ride to Remember at SWERVE Fitness in Midtown Manhattan. Ride to Remember, one of the largest fundraisers held by the Junior Committee and the second fundraiser in 2017, is a spin event where riders raise awareness and funds for CaringKind. Riders signed up as teams or individuals and spent the night spinning and having fun! Participants received bottles of water sponsored by CORE and a goody bag filled with donated items, including Hippeas snacks, Sparkling Ice beverages, and Justin’s Vanilla flavored almond butter.
The top fundraiser, Rachel Braunwell Komyati, raised a total of $1,235 and was recognized at the event by the Junior Committee Executive Board. This year, we raised over of $7,400, and over the past 4 years have raised over $60,000 to support caregivers and research efforts for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
