The Andiamo Motorcycle Charity Run will host its 20th annual benefit on Sunday, September 8, at 10:20 a.m., rain or shine. It will together nearly 1,000 riders and thousands of participants in one of New Jersey’s largest fundraisers on wheels. Registration opens at 8 a.m.
The ride, which will be led by a motorcycle police brigade with representatives from police departments in New Jersey and New York, leaves from Andiamo Restaurant in Haworth and follows a 50- to 60-mile course through northeast New Jersey and southeast New York. The ride finishes back at Andiamo with a block party celebration offering food and entertainment.
Profits will support the Englewood Health Foundation, Haworth Volunteer Ambulance, Special Olympics, Haworth Police Auxiliary, Andiamo Scholarship to St. Therese School, and other local charities.
Don Dickstein, Andiamo’s owner, launched the run in 1999 to raise funds for the Cresskill Police Department. Since then, he’s expanded the event in support of additional charity beneficiaries.
