"Strong In Spirit" Motorcycle Ride Raises Awareness & Funds For Special Needs Animals

Yesterday David DiNicola embarked on a ten day, 4,000 mile motorcycle journey from Massachusetts to California in order to raise awareness and funds for special needs animals. David's inspiration for the ride came from his late rescued German Shepherd, KaDee, who used a custom wheelchair from Eddie's Wheels during the last few years of her life.

David hopes to raise $100,000 for two animal welfare organizations: The Berkshire Humane Society, where he first adopted KaDee as a puppy, and the Catskill Animal Sanctuary, which provides a safe haven for abused and abandoned farm animals, including a blind calf named Helen and Atlas the goat, who also uses an set of Eddie's Wheels to get around.
