The annual 65-mile bike ride from Philadelphia to Atlantic City raises funds to support the children of Philadelphia’s fallen police officers. The NBC 10 team raised over $2,000. Deanna says the teams energy started flagging around mile 50, but everyone became instantly energized when they spotted the casinos of Atlantic City on the horizon. “Our team was awesome!” says Durante, who was thrilled that the team stuck together towards the end and crossed the finish line together. Plans are already in the works for next year’s ride.
