Biking for Buddies 2013
The second annual Biking for Buddies took place on July 28, 2013. Fifty-nine Riders supported the magic of mentoring by pedaling their way through some of Franklin County's most beautiful countryside. This event consisted of three routes for cyclists: 10, 25 and 50 miles. Thank you to Northfield Mount Hermon School in Gill. This fun and family-friendly event raised over $5600 in crucial funds for our programs. This year's proceeds will enable us to match at least five more children in need of mentors. Our professional and dedicated case managers greatly appreciate the support from people like you!
