BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - On Friday, three local bikers will set off from Boston for a three-day, 285-mile bike ride into NYC as part of "Braking AIDS."
The ride benefits Housing Works, a NYC-based advocacy group that works on behalf of people living with HIV and AIDS.
Biker Matthew Crehan Higgins said, "It's been really heartening to see, when you tell people what you're doing and the purpose for why you're doing it. People really come out and give so generously. Even if they're not able to give monetarily they give support by spreading the word for you we well."
Each rider had to raise a minimum of $3,500.
