The Ride for Life made its way through Sachem on May 19 to raise awareness and support in the fight against ALS. Each year in the month of May, which is ALS Awareness Month, the Ride for Life makes stops at schools across Long Island and into New York City. ALS patients lead the ride with students following while holding signs with messages of positivity and hope.
This year, the Ride for Life made stops at Sachem High School East, Sagamore Middle School, Sachem High School North, Tamarac Elementary School and Merrimac Elementary School. Students presented checks to the Ride for Life organization along the way to help with patient services.
