Bike 4 Chai Opens 2013 Registration

Just five months after 200 cyclists comppleted a 150 mile bike tour for Chai Lifeline’s 4th annual Bike 4 Chai fundraiser, registration has opened for the 2013 Bike 4 Chai tour.

With an all-new website, Bike 4 Chai says they’re excited for the 2013 adventure.

 “We’re looking forward to 2013 being the best year ever”, says MSW, NJ Regional Director Rabbi Sruly Fried.

In 2009, one biker – Dovid Egert – who enjoyed long bike rides made the trip to the camp in attempt to raise money for the camp, and raised $10,000 for the cause. But then, it went viral.

“It’s amazing how it became a National event with riders from as far as Canada and Israel joining”, Fried says.

In 2010, Bike 4 Chai raised $200,000, with 40 riders.

In 2011, with 150 riders, the non-profit organization raised a whopping $550,000.

Last year, the organization is aimed for $1,000,000 with 200 riders, and brought in over $1.7 million.

This year’s event will cap the amount of riders at 300, Fried says.

The 150 mile and 2 day trip will kick off this year on July 31, 2013.
