Rich’s Ride of Hope

Posted: Updated:
New York, New York (My9NJ) -

From July 29th through July 30th, Rich Rundle of Ramsey, New Jersey, will be biking from New York City to the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. in support of multiple sclerosis. Rundle is riding in honor of his brother who was recently diagnosed with MS, a chronic debilitating disease. Rundle will be taking the ride to spread the message of hope and to raise money supporting The New York Stem Cell Foundation.

“The day that I found out, I was on the phone with my brother and he told me he has MS, I just sat in my office, you don’t know how to feel. You’re sad, the bigger thing is you feel useless,” Rundle shared.

Rundle’s brother is a teacher, music minister, and father of two. After being diagnosed, Rundle says his brother quickly deteriorated and continued to lose hope. In an effort to provide support and motivation, Rundle reached out to New York Stem Cell Foundation about his plan. The foundation replied back in support to him the very next day.

Rundle will be riding 255 miles to raise funds for stem cell research to find a permanent cure for multiple sclerosis

“I’ve never been athletic in my life, so for me to be doing this is taking on a big challenge,” Rundle said.

Rundle is planning to raise $10,000 to find a cure for the disease and he is currently halfway to his goal. You too can donate to this cause.  Click here to learn how!

    The knockout game where young people randomly punch innocent bystanders to see if they can knock them unconscious has been relatively rare in New Jersey, until now. After three attacks in less than half an hour in a safe Hackensack neighborhood, some residents are concerned that this trend will pose potential problems for more New Jerseyans. Hackensack police are looking for a man caught on surveillance video who is suspected of the three separate assaults.
