MANHASSET, N.Y., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The need to raise funds to deliver services and support to children of 9/11 victims continues.  Even though the memory of the event may have faded for some, the needs of the children have not.  On Sunday, May 2, 2010, Bike New York will be holding their 33rd Five Boro Bike Tour and Tuesday's Children has secured spots for interested participants.  At 42 miles, the route is doable for cyclists of all levels.

Multiple stops will be available along the way providing beverages, snacks, bike repairs and medical help.  All services are free of charge to riders.

"Support from individuals really makes a difference.  Funds are allocated to developing and maintaining the many support programs we offer including mentoring, educational and career guidance, leadership training and life management," said Terry Grace Sears, Executive Director.

Interested participants will be asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 for Tuesday's Children.  However, Sears indicated that if an individual has already registered, they can still raise funds for Tuesday's Children in any amount.

A limited number of spots remain.  If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please contact Alisha at 516-562-9000 or email alisha@tuesdayschildren.org as soon as possible or visit www.bikenewyork.org and/or www.tuesdayschildren.org for more information.
