The Friday, Kick-off was amazing!!! If you missed it let me tell you a little about it. Larry Moss created these life size cyclist out of balloons – so cool! The Empire Stateman performed and there are no words to describe their talent. Metlife passed out finger print kits and even Snoopy stopped by to say “hi” to the kids. Wegmans supplied us with some tasty treats before the ceremony began. Friends, family, dignitaries gather to show their support…tears of sadness and tears of hope were shed.
From the ceremonies Ed and Ahmad joined by team Excellus biked around Rochester stopping to talk with people about the SPC initiatives. From there we had to go back to packing the RV and let’s just say…we never finished…only day 2 and it already looks like we are living out of it, hahaha.
Yesterday we were up bright and early for the 10AM send off at Frontier Field. Ed and Ahmad raved about the ride and about our New York State Trooper and the Monroe and Eire County Sheriff’s department…once we got near the venue, they were escorted in my Amherst police.
Doug and Mary Lyall did a wonderful job in Buffalo along with help from Lisa Cooke and Latanja Morsell. We can’t forget our friends from Sam’s Club and Home Depot who also came out to volunteer! Great job!!!!
Congressman Chris Lee is ready to help! We won’t forget! J
