Diaz and Montefiore Promote Tour de Bronx

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. was at Montefiore Children's Hospital this morning to promote the Tour de Bronx, the borough-wide group bicycle ride taking place this Sunday. This year's tour will honor Megan Charlop, a longtime health advocate and Montefiore employee who was killed in a cycling accident this spring.

"Montefiore has always had a tradition of being deeper in the community, promoting wellness and prevention," said Steven Safyer, MD, president of Montefiore, one of the tour's major sponsors. "This big bike ride is an important activity, and an example of adults creating the right examples for children." 

The Bronx News Network is this year's Tour de Bronx media sponsor. If you haven't registered already, you can do so here.
