Nearly 600 motorcyclists helped raise more than $17,000 by riding Jan. 5 in the 17th Annual WBAB Cold Finger Run fundraiser benefiting Camp Adventure, a summer camp for children with cancer run by the Copiague-based nonprofit Kids Need More.

The WBAB Cold Finger Run takes participants on a 40-mile run from the Cradle of
Aviation in Garden City to Stereo Garden in Patchogue, where riders will be treated to
food, raffle prizes, and live music with Long Island legends The Stanton Anderson

Over the past 16 years, the WBAB Cold Finger Run has raised more than $250,000 for
Camp Adventure, which gives Long Island children battling cancer a unique opportunity
to enjoy the camp experience while receiving care and medical treatment. The camp is
run by volunteers and supported through donations from individuals and businesses

Supporters of the event included Full Throttle NY, NE Magazine, Rolling Thunder Cycles Inc, Red Knights Chapter 26, Suffolk County NY Riders of Fire, MC NY, Tier Rats Mc, Raymond G. Atkin, Joseph Richter, Nassau County Highway Patrol, Nassau County Police Department, Suffolk County Highway Patrol, Suffolk County Police Department, Civil Air Patrol, Stereo Garden LI, Cradle of Aviation Museum, News 12 Long Island, Motorcyle Mike Esq., College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving, and Moe’s Southwest Grill.
