About Me

This is my 3rd ride with Lens On Life. Last years ride from NYC to Montauk was hard but fun and helped raise critical funds for LOL programs. This year we want to build on that momentum. We are riding 140 miles from NY to Albany. Lens on Life helps at risk kids learn both photography and computer skills, illuminating their environments for us, shedding light on often very difficult situations and circumstances and finding beauty, joy, and meaning in the stories they capture. The work of the Lens on Life organization casts light on a way forward for its students to find opportunities for a better life. You can help make this happen with us!

More Info

On October 8th and 9th, we will be riding over 140 miles in two days from NYC to Albany. Why? We are raising money for Lens on Life Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports photography and computer literacy training for at-risk youth around the world. Lens on Life has taught photography and computer skills to hundreds of youth in the DR Congo, Zaatari refugee camp, Cameroon, Iraq, and New York City, providing an outlet for self-expression and qualifications to enter the global job market.
