Beginning August 13, David DiNicola has pledged to ride his motorcycle across America to benefit two animal-welfare organizations. DiNicola’s paralyzed German Shepard, KaDee, inspired him to make the cross-country road trip after she ran the Berkshire Human 5K Race in her doggy wheelchair in 2007. Although KaDee passed away in 2009, DiNicola hopes to honor her by raising $100,000 in donations for the Berkshire Humane Society and the Catskill Animal Sanctuary during his “Strong in Spirit” fundraiser. Commencing in Massachusetts, the ride will take him through 10 states in 10 days on Route 50 before ending in California.
