March 28, 2011 Benefit Evening at the Crosby Hotel



NYCC presented a very special event on March 28, 2011 -- a benefit evening at The Crosby Street Hotel for the Kids Ride Club.

Founded by NYCC member Dr. Ed Fishkin, KRC is a 16-year-old program that introduces youngsters to cycling as great recreation, as a safe and effective means of transportation and encourages them to incorporate regular physical activity into their lives. The kids come from Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick, Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Long Island City and is run by a coalition of volunteers from Woodhull Hospital, Recycle a Bicycle, I.S. 318, P.S. 257, HealthFirst and New York Cycle Club.

Thanks to the Crosby Street Hotel, Crumpler and Bicycle Habitat, three generous, community-minded businesses, who helped us pull off this successful fundraising evening.
