The Dream Ride For Special Olympics. Ride For A Good Cause From South Florida To Connecticut

DreamRideLogoGet ready to escape South Florida’s blistering heat to hit the scenic byways of the US Mid-Atlantic states, from West Palm Beach, Florida to Farmington, Connecticut! (or any leg in between!) Pack your saddlebags: a 1,900-mile adventure of Good Will awaits you, August 16-22, followed by two days of motorsports shows, rides and entertainment at the destination, August 23-24.

DramridebisThe Dream Ride Experience is a 13 year-old effort started by Mike Bozzuto, CEO of Bozzuto’s Inc., one of New England’s largest food wholesalers. It grew from his dream to raise funds and awareness of intellectually challenged children and adults and to make a substantial contribution to Special Olympics. The ride turned into an international fund raising effort that now spans 3 countries and 12 states, all for 1 cause: to celebrate with Special Olympic athletes and to recognize their achievements and efforts to overcome intellectual challenges.

DreamRidebisFrom Australia and Canada and throughout the Mid-Atlantic States, motorcycle and car enthusiasts will join for a 1,900-mile scenic ride that generates excitement, enjoyment and donations to help Special Olympic athletes who will meet the riders along the Dream Ride route. Riders and drivers can join in on various legs of the trip or ride the entire 1,900 miles over 6 days. While the ride traverses some of the Eastern US’ most renowned riding territories and will be a real Dream Ride, the real joy for the participants will be the joyful faces of the athletes as they meet the riders at each stop. Sharing awe over the beautiful bikes and cars and relishing the recognition that the riders are traveling to see them – to celebrate their achievements – makes this ride a dream come true for the athletes.

A celebration, open-to-the-public, Kickoff Event on Saturday August 16 at the PGA National Resort & Spa provides entertainment, fun, food and pet adoptions as the riders get ready for their Dream Ride. Special Olympic athletes will be there to cheer their friends on their journey. All are welcome to attend; donate at  The Dream Ride and follow the ride on Facebook or Twitter. Call 203 250 5112 to register by phone or email [email protected].

About Special Olympics. The ultimate objective of Special Olympics Florida is to help people with intellectual disabilities participate as productive and respected members of society at large, by offering them a fair opportunity to develop and demonstrate their skills and talents through sports training and competition, and by increasing the public’s awareness of their capabilities and needs.

    Good charity! Sunday,with “not so good” weather we did the Ronald MacDonald House run out of Rochester Mn. Something over 1000 riders and raised $104,000. It was the 14th…the local HOG chapter has raised $1,250,000. over the years. The ride, silent auction and live auction; and contributions from local companies make up the total. The ride is was begun and is still organized by Galand Lorenze (Spelling ?). Every penny goes directly to the RMH in Rochester. Lot’sa fun!
