ALS ‘Ride for Life’ Volunteers Praised by Town Officials

ALS

Islip, NY – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter was recently joined by Islip officials and local volunteers outside of Town Hall in a demonstration of support for the ‘Ride for Life’ charity. Ride for Life began in 1997 as a way to highlight the struggle that ALS patients and their loved ones face every day. Each year in May, which is National ALS Awareness Month, those afflicted by ALS are joined by thousands of supporters as they ride across Long Island, bringing attention to the disease and raising funds for research that could one day lead to a cure.

“I’m so proud of the community’s support for Ride for Life,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “Over 30,000 Americans suffer from this terrible disease, but thanks to charities like Ride for Life we are able to show our support for those struggling with ALS.”

Councilman Steve Flotteron, Councilman John Cochrane, Jr., and Town Clerk Olga Murray joined Supervisor Carpenter and the volunteers in recognition of Ride for Life’s mission.
