Harbor to the Bay

We received a nice thank you letter from Jim Morgrage and Harbor to the Bay for our donation of $200. Harbor to the Bay raised over $425,000.00 for HIV and AIDS care this year! One hundred percent of donations to Harbor to the Bay went to their beneficiaries: Fenway Community Health, AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod, Community Research Initiative of New England and the AIDS Action Committee. “These leading HIV and AIDS service organizations improve the quality and accessibility of HIV care and services, drive community awareness to prevent infection and embrace people impacted by AIDS.”

The late Michael Tye founded the Harbor to the Bay Charity ride thirteen years ago; since then over $4.4 million has been raised and donated!

The 14th annual ride will be held on Saturday, September 17th, 2016. If you are interested in riding, donating or helping out, see their site.

Harbor to the Bay is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
