New York Coach to Bike and Snowshoe Over 200 Miles for Charity
CAZENOVIA, N.Y. (AP) — A central New York endurance coach is planning a unique fundraiser for identical 12-year-old twin boys who have a fatal genetic disorder.
Tim O'Shea of Cazenovia plans to ride his bicycle from the Syracuse suburb of Manlius to the base of Mt. Marcy, New York's highest peak. That's a little over 200 miles. O'Shea then will snowshoe to the summit and back down, a round trip of about 15 miles.
All proceeds go to Two Smiles One Hope, a foundation created by the family of Nolan and Jack Willis of Fayetteville, New York. The twins have been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
