Today, members of the Hackensack Police Department participated in the "Go the Distance for Autism" bike event. Police Officers Melber, Ziegelhofer, and Kloss rode in the 50 mile ride from the Garden State Plaza to Mahwah, and back.
The event raises funds for four North Jersey schools dedicated to helping families with the daily struggles of raising an autistic child. Those schools are the Alpine Learning Group, REED Academy, Garden Academy, and The Educational Partnership for Instructing Children (EPIC). As of this evening, the event had raised $843,985 to date.
