On Sunday, September 11, 2016 South Florida will make a move by raising awareness for senior citizens. The Grandparents Day Bike-a-thon is the first of its kind, celebrating and honoring the elderly. The event is hosted by United Jewish Generations, a non-profit organization with provides services and programming for senior citizens.
The Grandparents Day Bike-a-thon is an opportunity to show respect and gratitude to those that have paved the way. “I encourage everyone to choose a senior they wish to honor and ride in the Grandparents Day Bike-a-thon,” says Rabbi Smith, director of United Jewish Generations. “Let’s change the way the general public views seniors by giving them the honor they deserve.” Seniors will receive a certificate stating that someone rode in their honor. Bikers can choose to ride 8 miles within Miami or join the 32 mile tri-county ride to Boca. Even people who can’t ride, can be there in spirit as a virtual biker. The event begins at 7:00 AM at Greynolds Park and the bikers will be accompanied by a police escort. For more information or to register, visit: www.GrandparentsDayBikeathon.org
