The annual two-day, 140-mile bike ride from Ocean City to Baltimore on May 10-11 was a financial success, organizers said. The event is a fundraiser for Moveable Feast, a Baltimore-based non-profit that provides lifesaving, nutritious foods for low-income Marylanders living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening conditions at no cost.
According to Thomas Bonderenko of Moveable Feast, the Ride was helped out by 185 volunteers, 262 riders, and thousands of donors. The monetary goal was exceeded by raising more than $650,000.
“That’s enough to feed 433 critically ill neighbors for an entire year,” Bonderenko stated in an email to supporters.
Serving 14 Maryland counties, in 2013, Moveable Feast delivered 702,083 meals to homes, shelters and drop-in centers, serving a total of 3,637 Marylanders. For more information on Moveable Feast, visit mfeast.org.
