Please help support Joey’s Ride and Goal

Dear Colleagues,

This Sunday, May 6th, Joey Benfante, a member of the HeartShare community, will be riding in the Five Boro Bike Tour with HeartShare’s 2018 Bike Team!

Joey lives in our Attardi Residence and through our Community Habilitation Program, learned to ride a bike thanks to the commitment of his DSP. While he started locally learning safety and skills in Dyker Heights, he then started riding everywhere from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Long Beach Boardwalk! Joey was featured in our 2017 Annual Report and his goal was to ride in the NYC Five Boro Bike Tour. As we do in all of our programs, we are helping Joey reach his potential and fulfill his dreams.

I invite all of you to support Joey’s efforts and this tremendous accomplishment. While his goal is to raise $1,500, we can far exceed that. If even half of our staff members contribute $10 – Joey can raise over $10,000!

You can learn about Joey’s efforts and make a donation in support of his journey here:

 Every gift counts and your support makes a difference. Go Joey!!
