BLOOMFIELD, NJ- Mac-Adley Hyppolite, Jr. blew through his fundraising goal to benefit Children's Hospital and just keeps going. The 1997 Bloomfield High graduate, known to his friends and fans as 'Mac' will bike from New Jersey to Florida in May to raise funds for Children's Hospital in May.
Hyppolite set a goal of $3000 for the effort. The community responded with more than $3500 in donations to date, and they keep pouring in. Most of the donations are $25 or $30.

Hyppolite plans to do his trip either May 1 or May 2 depending on the weather. “I prefer to ride when it’s good weather,” he said. The whole trip should take about 18 to 21 days.“I am accustomed to riding through blizzards and rain. I plan to start at sunrise and stop two hours before sundown. I am so curious while I am riding and want to see what’s out there,” Mac told TAPinto Bloomfield.
“I am excited to take the ride and want to thank everyone who has helped and supported me and made this possible,” he said.
