Bikers gather for ‘Miracle Ride’ to support pediatric cancer services at Golisano Children’s
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Hundreds of motorcyclists are expected to gather Saturday, May 22 at the Spinning Wheel Restaurant, 7384 Thompson Road in North Syracuse, to begin a “Miracle Ride” through Onondaga and Madison counties to support pediatric services at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital and the upcoming Pediatric Cancer Center.
Now in its 16th year, Miracle Ride is the longest running motorcycle ride supporting pediatric care in Central New York. Motorcyclists will take a 60-mile scenic ride around Onondaga and Madison counties and return to the Spinning Wheel Restaurant for a chicken BBQ; entertainment, including music by the Double Barrel Blues Band; food; and vendor displays. A benefit raffle will be held for a bath remodel donated by Bathrenew and two airline tickets anywhere in the contiguous United States donated by BTI Travel.
Last year’s Miracle Ride raised nearly $70,000. Overall, the annual event has raised $700,000 for ill and injured children who are treated at the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. The proceeds, collectively, has helped thousands of children who rely on specialized technology and new advances in medical treatments to manage or overcome their medical concerns.
“It is wonderful to see so many people each year come together to help our children,” said Toni Gary, director of community relations for the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.
