Race is on to boost Achiezer


CIMBY — which stands for Chesed In My BackYard — is on a roll to help Achiezer, the Five Towns-Far Rockaway commnity resource center whose wide-ranging services and referrals are available to everyone.

This year’s fundraiser is a prize-generating virtual competition for runners and cyclists of all levels, working from socially distanced locations to turn their athletic efforts into dollars for Achiezer.  

Each participate commits to raise a minimum of $500; the more one collects the more swag one receives, with prizes ranging from a hoodie to a home work-out station and a Peloton bike. All participants will be treated to an exclusive dinner.

To claim a spot on the 2020 CIMBY SPORT fundraising page, visit and select the Cycling or Running track (or both!).

After signing up, cyclists and runners are off to the races, and can track their exercise data online.
