Jeason Greene II, 10, and his best friend Justin Anderson celebrated Justin’s 10th birthday by kicking off their Helping Hands Week Fundraiser at the Troller Car Diner in Mt. Airy on Monday, July 6. This event runs through Sunday, July 12 and 15 percent of the purchase is donated to the National MS Society. The two friends are teaming up again to ride in the MS 150 City to Shore Bike Ride sponsored by the National MS Society. Jason and Justin rode nearly 25 miles in the MS 150 back in 2007 when they were both just 8 years old. They were VIP riders, each raising $1,000 for the cause. Last year the age limit was changed to 10 years old so the pair had to put their dreams on hold. This year they are hoping that with better bikes and padded shorts they will complete 50 miles.
Jason started riding in the MS 150 at the age of five on a tandem bike with his grandmother, a cancer survivor, who has been a VIP rider for the past seven years. Jason’s grandmother, known as “Dee”, offers a riding school to her grandkids and any other interested children. There they learn the rules of the road before heading off to the park to practice their safety lesson and then finally onto the bike path along the Schuylkill River. Dee has recruited several other people to participate in the ride over the years including Justin’s parents and cousins.
Jason will be entering the fifth grade at John Story Jenks Elementary School. Justin will be entering the fifth grade at Chestnut Hill Academy. Both boys also play basketball for Mt. Airy Baseball and soccer for the Chestnut Hill Youth Sports Club.
The Helping Hands Week will be held Monday, July 6 through Sunday, July 12 at the Trolley Car Diner and Deli, 7619 Germantown Ave. The hours are Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 3-9 p.m. Fifteen percent of the revenue will go to the National MS Society.
