GEDDES, N.Y. -- Hundreds of cyclists were up early on Saturday morning to help the Rescue Mission. The seventh annual Ride for the Rescue was held in Long Branch Park.
Organizers were hoping to raise $175,000 to help provide free services to homeless and hungry people in Onondaga, Cayuga and Broome Counties.
"There's a huge need in this community. We're seeing record numbers of meals. We've served over 950 meals in one day, which is a record for us. Families, children, men and women in this community are on the margins and need assistance that the Rescue Mission provides," said Alan Thornton, Rescue Mission COO.
