Milltown NJ Man Cycling Across the Country to Help Local Animal Rescue
Karma Cat + Zen Dog Rescue Society volunteer and supporter, Nicholas Grisi, is embarking on another unbelievable journey. Nick is riding his bike from Washington State to New Jersey to raise money for the Karma Cat Zen Dog Society in Milltown.
Nick left about two weeks ago and is about six hundred miles in on this second long and exhausting ride. We caught up with Nick when he was almost out of Montana. Nick said they’ve been in Montana for a while because it’s such a big state. He also said that it was more difficult than the southern ride he did a couple of years ago because of all the mountains and hills.
Nick shared during our conversation, “No major issues aside from just some junky weather here and there, some rain, and cold weather up in the mountains. Other than that everything has been pretty good so far.” He also told us he prepared for the ride by riding his “bike as much as I could at home before I left, it’s just extremely flat, as you know, in New Jersey so it’s hard to really train until you get out on the road.
Nicholas has launched a “Cycling for Kitties” GoFundMe to help raise money for items needed for his trip, as well as daily expenses, including food and lodging. His goal is$10,000 and has pledged that he will be giving back 100% of the donations to the animal rescue, Karma Cat + Zen Dog Rescue Society. He has already reached the six thousand dollar mark and he’ll be continuing his ride through late July. Follow Nicholas’ journey here.
