Cycle For Special Needs


budOn Sunday, May 17, at 5:45 p.m., the Sid Jacobson JCC’s New Leadership Group will host the annual Cycle for Special Needs event at SoulCycle,
250 South Service Rd., Roslyn Heights.

The 1980s-themed fundraiser will benefit Camp Kehilla, the JCC’s camp for children, teens and young adults with special needs.

This event, which has consistently sold out, has raised approximately $64,000 to date. These funds have allowed for the building of a large sensory play area, as well as an air conditioned multi-purpose pavilion. Money raised through this year’s event will help build a miniature golf course, as well as an outdoor amphitheater.

“Last year’s addition of the play area and air conditioned multi-purpose pavilion have enhanced our program greatly, and we could not have had them without the generosity of the New Leadership Group,” said Pamela Zimmer, director of Camp Kehilla. “We are thrilled to see this amazing event continue into its third year.”

The event planning committee is working with a group of local teens involved with the JCC to coordinate their own themed cycling event to benefit Camp Kehilla. The teen event, featuring a playlist of music by Beyoncé, will take place on Thursday, June 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the JCC’s recently renovated spin studio.

Sponsorship opportunities are available at all levels, which includes event signage. A first hand opportunity for participants to experience what Camp Kehilla offers is available at the camp’s Community Service Day on Sunday, June 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For sponsorship opportunities, contact
