At TD Five Boro Bike Tour, Team OHEL Wins for OHEL’s Children

While most of us were sleeping in on a chilly Sunday morning, the brave and determined members of Team OHEL trekked out early on May 7 to complete the grueling TD Five-Boro Bike Tour, all in support of the thousands of individuals and families OHEL serves every day.

A team of 15 dedicated team members raised money for OHEL’s myriad programs and services that serve the most vulnerable in our community, including a scholarship fund to help send children with disabilities to Camp Kaylie at OHEL, the trailblazing, inclusive summer camp in Wurtsboro, New York.

For 40 miles, Team OHEL riders pushed themselves to their physical limits, motivated by their collective mission to raise money and awareness for foster children, victims of domestic violence and people with disabilities.

Our amazing riders led the way with some outstanding individual finishes—both across the finish line, and in their generosity!

“The moment I sent out a notice that I would be riding with Team OHEL in the Five-Boro Bike Tour, my friends and family members were eager to contribute to my ride. From the moment I reached out to join the team, OHEL was there every step of the way,” says Jeff Katz, first-time rider with Team OHEL.

Team OHEL helps to elevate the lives of thousands every year, through their annual fundraising sports initiatives, and you too can be transformative!

Join Team OHEL in the NYC Life Time Triathlon on July 16 or the TCS NYC Marathon on November 5. You can secure a spot on our team now by contacting Meital Cafri at 718-686-3217 or [email protected].
