BLOOMFIELD, NJ - Before Bloomfield's Mac-Adley Hyppolite Jr. ('Mac') set off on his charity bike ride on Monday, he may very well crash through the $5000 fundraising milepost. Hyppolite passed his original goal of $3000 weeks ago. The funds raised will be donated to Children's Hospital in New Brunswick.
An avid bike rider for the past four years, Mac is preparing for the road trip by riding 40 to 60 miles a daily. He rides and considers himself the “average guy,” who can ride. “If I can ride my bike, then anyone can,” he told TAPinto Bloomfield.
The Bloomfield Police Department will provide Mac with an escort as he leaves Bloomfield.
When he arrives in Fort Lauderdale at the end of May he will present another check there. As of April 26, 'Mac' has raised over $4700.
