Ride for the A’s
The Play for the As has already collected over $1,700, and with the addition of the first ever “Ride for the As” effort by two Strath Haven players (junior defender Charlie Dawes and junior attackman Walter Clauss), who will attempt to ride their bikes to Key West (1,500 miles each) this summer the fundraising effort has gone over $8,000.
WHY KEY WEST?
Ride for the A’s started as a harebrained idea that Dawes had one day at the lunch table. Having just completed a ride to the Jersey Shore, the boys’ confidence was unwavering so “Let’s ride our bikes to the farthest beach – Key West!” sounded about right.
