    Thanks to everyone who participated in the 9th Annual P4P Ride. We had a great ride and we are deeply grateful for your support. Thanks to your involvement, P4P has raised nearly $450K over the past nine years – in our wildest dreams we never would have thought that possible – Thank You!

    Here’s a photo summary of our day:

    September 19, 2015

    For most of us wake up time was around 5am, and, well, coffee helped…


    Once we were awake and at the start, it was time to check the gear. Mark dialed in his GPS.




    We were ready!


    The riding began…


    It was good to know that we’d be well supported… 


    Okay, so that wasn’t our SAG wagon. Bill Sr.’s suburban was far better, and much more organized. We were happy to refuel at mile 40. Thanks Bill!


    After some refueling, we were back on the road…


    …and we kept riding and riding…


    One last stop at a classic New England store to refuel… We didn’t have any Pumpkin brew… instead, food and water… and then back on the road for the final miles of the ride.


    The finish was getting closer and we were looking forward to seeing our families!




    After 100 miles, we made it!


    The support at the finish was awesome! Thank You!


    Billy finished to applause, cheers, and thanks… and so did the rest of us!




    Great day, great ride. We were all super happy to be part of it!


    THANK YOU!

    We look forward to seeing you at the 10th and final P4P Ride next September 2016!
