Rolling out of Ai Fiori to ride for MS research and relief

You cook and make drinks to please those who enter your bar or restaurant. But what are you doing to help out the rest of the world, like those afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis and other diseases that make sometimes the simplest of life’s pleasures impossible to enjoy?

While you can’t feed them all you can put your money where your mouth is and contribute to a worthy cause. Even if it means letting someone else (in this case Chris Jaeckle) do the heavy lifting.

Jaeckle steps out of the Ai Fiori (www.aifiorinyc.com) kitchen to share his thoughts on getting involved with this annual charity bike ride that takes place this year on October 2nd. He says, “I have participated in this ride several times. My best friend’s mother has been living with MS for years, and it has been my way of showing support for him and his family. I am hoping to raise more than I have in the past, to continue to contribute as well as express the strength of our friendship. I am doing the 100. Anything helps.”

Jaeckle set a goal of raising $500 dollars and is well over that mark; almost double. While it’s not necessary to hop on a bike and ride alongside him, why not share in his effort and contribute? Just a little?
