Five Rutgers University students are making New Jersey proud through their efforts to raise money for the state’s at-risk youth.

The college students will be cycling from New Jersey to Florida — 2,000 miles — to raise money for the group Visions and Pathways. The nonprofit helps at-risk kids in New Jersey.

Each of the riders pledged to raise over $3,500.

The group left New Jersey this past Saturday. They will arrive in Washington D.C. Wednesday. They hope to make it to Miami by June 19.

More information about the group and their mission can be found HERE.
