Pedaling across the country for children

IMAG0939

Bernie Buffone is cycling across the country to raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.

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 .
