PSEG Long Island employees, including one from Oakdale, recently participated in the Town of Babylon’s 15th Annual Soldier Ride. The team raised more than $1,200 for the event, which benefits the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).
“Our veterans have sacrificed so much for us,” said Kelly Vaughn, senior engineer. “Participating in Soldier Ride is one small way we can honor them and thank them for all they’ve done for our country,” she said, adding that this was the third time she has participated in the event. She also took to the pavement in 2018 and 2019.
Soldier Ride is an annual bike ride that begins at Babylon Town Hall, snakes through Copiague, Amityville, Lindenhurst and Babylon, and travels over the Robert Moses Causeway before ending at Babylon’s Overlook Beach. This event marked the first since 2019 ─ a return from a COVID pause.
