Event raised $3,500 to support The Arc NCR’s programs
for Harford County residents with developmental and intellectual disabilities
[Aberdeen, MD] May 14, 2015 – Organizers of The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region’s (“The Arc NCR”) Third Annual Harford Hills Bike Adventure on Saturday, April 25 are calling the event a great success, with 48 cyclists participating despite the chilly weather. This year’s course featured a new route, which began and ended at Towson University in Northeastern Maryland, located on the campus of Harford Community College. After the ride, bikers and their families enjoyed a complimentary barbeque lunch donated by Famous Dave’s and the live music of Electric Molly.
The event raised over $3,500 through sponsorship and participation fees. In addition to raising funds for programs, the event is intended to raise awareness of the services and opportunities The Arc NCR provides to people with differing abilities.
The Arc NCR board member Susan Kemen said of the event, “It was an honor to participate in this year’s bike adventure. It was amazing to see the riders show up in less than favorable temperatures to honor and support The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region. I had the unique pleasure of riding the entire event with Joe Harter, who is supported by The Arc NCR. He is a fellow board member and the artist responsible for the beautiful image displayed on the event’s shirt, which was provided to each rider. It was a great event and I hope we triple attendance for next year!”
The Arc NCR thanks the following sponsors for their support: Fidelity Bank Mortgage, Picket Fence Financial, Corcoran Builders, Elegant Restoration, Diane Smith & Family, Famous Dave’s of Bel Air, JigSaw Marketing Solutions, The Bike Shop of Bel Air and Rockfield Manor. The Arc NCR also thanks Electric Molly for the live music.
