Town resident to cycle 110 miles for local teen heart-transplant recipient
Fort Lee resident Maxim Almenas will cycle for 110 miles in the May 19 "Gran Fondo NY" cycling race - from the George Washington Bridge to Bear Mountain, and finishing in Weehawken, NJ. Maxim is riding to raise funds for Children’s Organ Transplant Association in honor of 16-year-old Fort Lee resident Johnny Damato, who underwent a heart transplant in 2012. The exorbitant costs of ongoing treatments and medications to keep Johnny alive are astronomical.
Donations of any amount are appreciated. Donations of $75 and above are tax-deductible. Businesses and organizations can donate via sponsor packages with marketing benefits. Please donate at www.thehumantriumph.com.
