Although the day was very wet, our spirits were not dampened a bit. Team First Source was out in full force Riding and Volunteering for The Ride For Missing Children. In addition to our corporate donation our employees raised over $10,500 making our total contribution to this year’s Ride $30,665.31!

Why We Ride: Liz Crane

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Liz Crane is part of Team First Source and will be raising funds and riding in this year’s Ride For Missing Children. Here’s why Liz decides to ride:

Liz Crane of Team First Source

“I have been participating in the Ride for three years, and each time it is more meaningful. The first time I rode into a school, when I saw and heard the kids cheering, the school bands playing and the banners flying, I thought, why are they doing this for us? We are doing this for them!

After all the hard work of training, fundraising and riding 100 or so miles, knowing the purpose of why we ride and spread awareness of our mission really brings out so many emotions that day, but when I see those precious kids, I cry every time!”

Throughout the year First Source contributes our time and financial resources to many worthy causes. This season we make a special appeal for the Ride For Missing Children-CNY, an annual 90+/- mile bicycle journey to raise funds and awareness for the plight of missing and exploited children. We are proud to be the Corporate Luminary Sponsor again, and equally proud that we have 8 Riders and 5 volunteers from Team First Source among the hundreds that will ride and volunteer this year. Learn more about the Ride, other riders and how we help to bring missing children home here.

What A Ride: A Recap from Julieann Maciag

Monday, May 21st, 2012

by Julieann Maciag
I was in awe the entire day. I couldn’t believe how much this ride meant to the kids and the community.  I was completely moved by the experience. The tributes were so poignant, and the speakers were inspiring. I was riding for Monica, a 13 yr old girl that went missing.  She was last seen carrying a bible. So I carried my own personal bible with me the whole time I did the ride.  I recall going through the Sara Anne Wood Legacy Tribute; When passing by the wreath, I found myself putting my hand on her button in her memory, and thanked her for keeping me going.

The hills were a bear, but I never stopped climbing them. No matter how tired, how worn down I was, I kept pushing. I felt so happy and relieved riding into New Hartford Rec Center and seeing my son standing there cheering me on. I can’t tell you how much that meant to me! I wanted to show him that no matter how hard a challenge can be, you can succeed if you don’t give up and you keep pushing through.  He is truly my inspiration. I just wish my parents were still alive to be there. But I know they were in spirit.

The entire day was great and I appreciate my teammates at First Source for cheering me on and coaching me all through the process.  When we presented the big check at the final prep meeting, I realized in that moment just how much our community appreciates what we do.  And I was proud to be a part of it. I am looking forward to doing the ride again next year as a member of Team First Source!
