    Once again, SMART integrative Massage Group is sponsoring the Montclair Turkey Ride.

    This year, SMART Integrative Massage Group is once again a sponsor. We will ride a 15-mile flat, circuitous route through Montclair, Glen Ridge, and Bloomfield to the Brookdale Shop Rite where we will purchase frozen turkeys for $20 each and carry them in our backpacks (on our bikes) to the Human Needs Food Pantry in Montclair. Afterwards, we rejoice and relax at Egan’s for a post-ride party.

    Those wishing to join us in the ride can register at https://www.bikereg.com/montclair-bikery-turkey-ride. Riders must be at least 18 years old and wear a bike helmet.

    Partners for Health Foundation is once again generously matching all cash donations to the Human Needs Food Pantry. Those that can’t join the ride are welcome to donate via the Partners for Health Foundation page. Donate via PayPal on their page and Partners for Health will match it dollar for dollar.

    Checks can also be dropped off at the Montclair Bikery. These donations will also be matched and should be made out to Partners for Health. “Funds raised during the Annual Turkey Ride help to address the persistent issue of hunger in our community while giving participants an incentive to be physically active. We’re proud that our matching grants program has contributed to the success of this wonderful effort,” said Pam Scott, Executive Director of the Foundation.

    What a great way to give back to our community and support our neighbors in need as a kickoff to the holiday season!
