DEE SNIDERS'S 15th ANNUAL RIDE TO BENEFIT MELISSA'S WISH

SAVE THE DATE | OCTOBER 1, 2017

DEE SNIDER’S RIDE raised over $1 million dollars in 10 years for the March of Dimes and $300,000 in the last 4 years for Long Island Cares to feed the needy on Long Island.

Past sponsors have included 20th Century Cycles, WBAB, Channel 12 News, Full Throttle Magazine, Newsday, Island Federal Credit Union, D’Addario, Garden City Pizza & Catering, The Town of Hempstead, Cre8ive Video Production, Joe Rock and the All Stars, Studio Psyclone, WebVantage, All American Drive-In, Alcott HR and more.

Melissa Blackford, the daughter of long time ride supporters Bill and Fran Blackford, was an incredible young woman who in 2009, after battling cancer for 6 1/2 years, lost her battle. In her final days, her last wish was that her parents promise if they did anything charitable in her memory, it would be to raise money to help the caregivers of cancer victims.

“IF YOU REMEMBER JUST ONE THING ABOUT ME, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT I WAS NEITHER A VICTIM NOR A SURVIVOR, I WAS A CANCER WARRIOR”.
