NEW HARTFORD – The Boonville VGW Post 5538 will host its annual Bike-A-Thon on Sunday, Sept. 29, to benefit Sitrin’s Military Rehabilitation Program.

“Boonville VFW is happy to once again offer this ride to veterans and community members alike,” said Paul Fortin, Vietnam veteran and Bike-A-Thon coordinator. “Sitrin’s program is committed to providing crucial help to veterans as they return home, and we’re proud to raise funds for such a worthy cause.”

Sitrin’s Military Rehabilitation Program provides free care to veterans, focusing on individual treatment and peer social engagement to combat symptoms of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and physical injuries sustained during time in the military.
The event is open to people of all ages, and there will be two paths to choose from depending on endurance level.

The first is a ride along the tow path, where people can bike up to 20 miles on the dirt road, which will be free of vehicle traffic during the event. The registration fee for adults is $25, and $1 per mile for those 12 years and under.

The other option is a more challenging ride for those 13 years and older that takes 30 miles round trip to finish. There will be rest and refreshment stops along the route. The entry fee for this ride is also $25.
All participants can bike at their own pace.

Those who raise a minimum of $200 will receive a commemorative cycle jersey.

Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m., and the rides will start at 8 a.m. Anyone interested can register the day of the event.
