On May 21st, Mark Goldstein left Boston, Massachusetts in pursuit of Santa Monica, CA. He plans on averaging 70 to 80 miles per day and will take the time to experience new cities with his family as he rides along. Goldstein is a former client who visited HEAR Center in the 1980s, and was inspired to combine his passion for cycling with his passion for helping others. Now in the 17th day of his ride, Goldstein has ridden through Massachusetts, New York, and Illinois. Photos of the sights he has seen with his family can be found on his social media pages.
HEAR Center is the only nonprofit of its kind in Los Angeles County, providing free hearing and speech screenings to over 6,000 individuals and counting this year! They also provide free follow-up evaluations at HEAR Center’s office for those children who fail their screening and whose families cannot afford their required care. These services as well as HEAR Center’s sliding scale and no-cost rates are funded in part by local foundations and individual donations as well as revenue generated by hearing aid sales.
HEAR Center has set a goal of raising $5,000 through Mark’s Ride. To date, we have received about 50% of our goal. Donations to help HEAR Center reach its goal during Mark’s Ride can be made at: www.hearcenter.org/donate.
