Long Island Bike Challenge Rides to Raise Money for North Shore-LIJ's Feinstein Institute of Medical Research
Date:7/11/2013

Manhasset, NY (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

Riders will participate in the Long Island Bike Challenge (LIBC) on Sunday, August 4 to support research conducted at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. Participants in the LIBC will ride 40, 62 or 100 miles, ending in East Hampton. Money raised from the event will be donated to the labs of researchers who study many diseases including cancer, inflammation, schizophrenia, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.

“As a native to Long Island, I appreciate the synergy of conducting an event on Long Island and raising donations for medical research being conducted on Long Island, which provides jobs and economic benefit to this community,” said Edward Diller, founder of LIBC. “Furthermore, I believe strongly that scientific medical research is vital in finding cures and preventions for diseases, which is why it’s critical that LIBC supports the mission of the Feinstein Institute to prevent disease and cure patients.”

To participate or support the LIBC challenge, visit http://www.feinsteininstitute.org/events/the-long-island-bike-challenge/.

There are three starting points in the LIBC – participants can bike for 100 miles, 62 miles, or 40 miles. The 100-mile ride begins at 6:00 am in the parking lot of the Wantagh LIRR station, the 62-mile ride begins in Medford at 9:15 am and the 40-mile ride begins in Westhampton at 10:30 am. Volunteers will operate water stops every 20 miles and mechanical support for bikes will be provided by local bike shops. The finish for all three rides is in East Hampton, where lunch will be provided. Bus transportation is offered to all riders to return to respective starting points.
