If you missed it: One of our very own Happening Now staffers did the 2009 Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation Charity Bike Ride. It was a 250+ mile ride.
The group left on Saturday from the Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington DC and arrived at Ground Zero here in NYC.A Marine Corps motto, "If its not raining, we're not training" becamea lesson learned by all.The weather was brutal-- cold and rainy all Sunday and Monday. The greatest reward for the riders wasn't the finish line, the warm roomor food when they completed the ride. It was the incredible news that they had surpassed the goal of raising 20 thousand dollars! They doubled this goal, raising 40K all of which will go directly to scholarships for children whose father or mother died serving our country.
