Bike to Save Lives!

10 Charitable Spots Available

Deadline to apply: March 31st, 2014

In an effort to raise both money and awareness for organ donation, the New York Organ Donor Network (NYODN) has 10 charitable spots available for the 37th Annual TD Five Boro Bike Tour on Sunday, May 4th, 2014. If you are interested in biking to save lives, please fill out the application below sharing your personal story related to organ donation and the reason you would like to bike for the cause.

Here in New York, only 22% of residents are enrolled in the New York State Donate Life Registry as organ, eye, and tissue donors. Nationwide, the average is 45%. Additionally, there are over 10,000 New Yorkers waiting for life-saving organ transplants. You can help. Biking for NYODN will help spread the message on the importance of organ donation and contribute to increasing the number of registered organ donors in New York.

The Five Boro Bike Tour will take place on Sunday, May 4th and offers 32,000 cyclists the opportunity to bike through all five boroughs– Manhattan, The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island.
