Long Island Bike Challenge Rides to Raise Money for North Shore-LIJ's Feinstein Institute of Medical Research

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.”
