On Saturday, September 13, proud bikers and supporters of the Maimonides Breast Cancer Program rode through the streets of Brooklyn to raise money for research.
The Eighth Annual “Ride 2 Live” was led by Dr. Patrick Borgen, the chair of the Department of Surgery at Maimonides Medical Center. With a police escort, the bikers journeyed from the Gilbert Rivera Pavilion (the Maimonides Breast Cancer Center), 745 64th Street, to the Baron De Kalb Knights of Columbus hall, 3000 Emmons Avenue.
The day began with a catered breakfast at 9 a.m., and at 12 p.m. the riders began their hour-long ride through Brooklyn to raise awareness of the disease.
At 1p.m. the after party for the bikers began at The Baron De Kalb, offering a barbecue, live entertainment and raffles.
The event has historically been one of the center’s most successful fundraisers, attracting hundreds of riders and raising thousands of dollars for the breast cancer program.
