THANK YOU NBC4 Bike Team for Riding for Our Clients

On Sunday, members of the NBC4 family rode 34 miles - from Roosevelt Island to Mt. Vernon and back - to support those in our community facing HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses.

The NBC4 riders, including NBC4 president and general manager Jackie Bradford, anchors Doreen Gentzler and Wendy Rieger, and reporter Steve Handelsman, braved the heat and raised more than $14,500 to support our mission. It was a reunion ride of sorts for the NBC4 bike team that participated in the AIDSRides from 1996 to 2002. 
"NBC4 was instrumental in putting Food & Friends “on the map” at a time when we were less known. Your station’s abiding interest in our work is proof that television journalism can stick with an important story over a long period of time. We’re vastly larger today than when we were founded but still live every day with a sense of gratitude for of our opportunity to serve. Our greatest opportunities are just down the road and around the next curve. Every day is an adventure."
-Craig Shniderman, Executive Director

At Food & Friends, we’re on a journey to create a community caring for those living with life-challenging illnesses. Thank you NBC4 - your support and compassion keep us moving forward.
