On Saturday, July 20, 2013, Michael Pascucci completed a 74 mile bike ride from Poughkeepsie, NY to The Bronx in honor of his mother Geraldine – affectionately known as Jay to those closest to her. Jay fought her battle with lung cancer as long as her will would allow, but after 2 years, she lost her fight.
Michael chose to undertake this mega-ride to honor his mother and to aid LCFA in funding the transformative science that leads to a cure in the hopes that other families can avoid the devastating heartache that this disease can bring. Poignantly, his ride ended at the apartment building where his Mom grew up on Crotona Ave. in the Bronx.
Michael is planning to repeat his ride next May. You can support Michael’s efforts at any time by donating to his fundraiser at: https://lcfamerica.myetap.org/fundraiser/michael_pascucci/
