Pedaling across the country for childrenPosted: January 23, 2015
Bernie Buffone of Berwick, Pennsylvania, stopped by the Jewish News office earlier this week during his visit to Phoenix as part of Kitten Run 2 – a cycling trek across the country to raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.
Buffone, 62, set out on his journey on June 30, 2014, a couple of months after retiring from his work as a senior project representative for an engineering firm. He plans to continue riding until Oct. 15 of this year.
Along the way, he encourages people he meets to send a quarter to St. Jude’s – “Everybody has a quarter,” he says. All funds go directly to St. Jude’s. Send to: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis TN 38105. Attn. Kitten Run .
