2nd Annual Rides & Strides

October 22, 2023 | Boulders Stadium, Pomona, NY

On Sunday, October 22, hundreds of family members, adorned in pink, will descend on Boulders Stadium in Pomona for the 2nd Annual Rides & Strides event to benefit the Breast Center at Montefiore Nyack Hospital. Explore beautiful Northern Rockland and the hills of Harriman State Park by biking one of our two cycling routes or joining the 5K Run/Walk.  Bring the whole family and take part in the Kids Fun Run sponsored by Fit4Mom Rockland. This promises to be a fun-filled day with entertainment, activities, awards, giveaways and more! With something for everyone, this event will not disappoint.

Last year, the inaugural event raised nearly $190,000. We can raise even more this year with your help! Register and start fundraising today. If you are unable to participate, please consider making a direct donation to support breast cancer patients at Montefiore Nyack Hospital. Our goal is to raise funds to provide screening services for at least 400 women next year.
