HNF is thrilled to announce that we have been chosen as a charity partner for the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour for the 13th year in a row! This exciting event will take place on May 7, 2023, in the bustling city of New York.

Riders will have the opportunity to traverse 42 miles across all five boroughs of New York. The ride commences just north of Battery Park and proceeds up through Manhattan, Central Park, a brief loop in the Bronx, and then down to the Queensboro Bridge. After crossing the Pulaski Bridge through Brooklyn, participants will experience a breathtaking view from the lower deck of the Verrazano Bridge. With one mile of uphill riding and a mile of downhill relief, riders will enter Staten Island to culminate the tour at the finish festival!

Only a few spots remain for this highly anticipated event, and we invite you to participate with a minimum donation of $1500. Click the link to secure your spot and support HNF in our mission to find CMT treatments and cures for Charcot-Marie-Tooth, CMT.
