Jared Rides for FPS!

4 years ago, Jared set off on a quest to cycle cross country and raise funds for FPS families to take a break from cancer. 18 days into his journey, he was struck by a truck and left paralyzed. In October 2020, Jared set off to complete his journey and arrived in Ocean City, NJ on October 24, 2020. It was an incredible journey! Jared inspired us all and raised over $5,000 for the FPS mission!

Follow his Ocean City, NJ Celebration with us below! It was a beautiful day that celebrated community. Many thanks to Mayor Jay Gillian, Ocean City NJ residents, police force, firefighters and city administration for coming out and cheering for Jared on the final leg of his journey cycling across the country for FPS! And Jared, thank you for inspiring people of all ages! Your resilience, courage and hope will forever be remembered by all those touched by your story. Read more about Jared’s journey here.
