Raising money for Sprouts!

On Saturday, April 24th, 23 riders from the AMA-MSS Buffalo chapter will cycle 20 miles from Tonawanda, NY, to Niagara Falls, NY to help raise awareness for wellness, prevention, nutrition and exercise through healthy life steps. They will join more than 200 young physicians-in-training from across New England and New York, participating in the second annual Miles for Healthier Lifestyles bicycle relay.

In conjuction with the bike relay, the local AMA-MSS chapter at the University at Buffalo is raising money to benefit Sprouts, a nutrition and wellness group at the medical school that plans to start a vegetable garden at the medical school for the students. The decision to fundraise for Sprouts stemmed from our belief that having a vegetable garden in our school would not only benefit current students, but also future students of the school. We thought that it would be a good investment, and we hope that you would too.

If you wish to help us reach our goal of raising $1,000 by the end of June, please visit our fundraising site below. Any amount that you can contribute is helpful and much appreciated!

The local AMA-MSS chapter at the University at Buffalo will host the ride on Saturday, April 24th, 2010:

Relay Start Time: 10:30 a.m.
Relay Start Location: Nia-wanda Park, Parking Lot (across from Dick’s Bicycle Shop, 781 Niagara St, Tonawanda, NY)

We thank you for your support!
