Dave Nazaroff of Nyack set off on his bicycle Sunday morning for a six-day, 900-mile journey for a special 11-year-old girl. This week he bikes from Nyack, NY to Georgia for the charity Ride to Give's recipient, Callie Truelove, who suffers from Williams Syndrome, a heart defect.
Nazaroff made it to his first destination, Limerick, PA and will continue on to Gainesville, GA this week. The Ride to Give is a 501(c)3 non-profit that raises funds and awareness for children with long-term illnesses and special needs. Nazaroff is the co-founder.
Nazaroff's ride to Gainesville, GA will culminate with a presentation of a check to Callie for her medical bills and other expenses. Ride to Give also partners with Sunshine on a Ranney Day (SOARD) who will give Callie a bedroom makeover.
During the ride this week Nazaroff's progress will be documented on Ride to Give's Facebook page. You can also track his progress on Strava.com by clicking here. The team will post the day's planned route and update the links to follow Nazaroff's "blue dot" as he rides.click here.
