WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J., Sept. XX, 2010 – Quick Chek, the premier chain of 125 fresh food store locations throughout New Jersey and Southern New York, announced today its newly formed Riding Team, a group of 14 employee volunteers diligently training for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) upcoming Ride for the Cure event, is nearing its ambitious goal to raise $65,000 for the nonprofit organization. This November the Quick Chek Riding team will travel to Tucson, Ariz., to participate in the 109-mile bike ride in an effort to help find a cure for the childhood disease.
The formation of the Quick Chek Riding Team follows Quick Chek Senior Vice President Mike Murphy’s raising of a record-setting $15,000 in donations by a single individual for the JDRF as he successfully completed pedaling 100 miles in the organization’s Ride for the Cure event held in Whitefish, MT, last year.
