For the last 18 years, WPTV News Channel 5 Chief Meteorologist Steve Weagle has been making his Ride for the Red Cross to kick off hurricane season. This year’s ride is in recognition of the years and dollars raised by WPTV and Steve’s Ride for the Red Cross. We are setting a goal of $150,000 to purchase a needed Next Generation Emergency Response Vehicle!
We need the help and generosity of the community to make this a truly successful event! Please consider donating to Steve's Ride for the Red Cross to help us meet our goal! And come join us to cheer Steve on as he broadcasts live on WPTV from his stops twice a day. Follow @SFLRedCross on Twitter and Facebook to find out where he'll be.
This year, Steve will make his annual Ride on June 4-8, 2018 from Sebastian to Boca Raton to mark the beginning of hurricane season and raise awareness of the Red Cross. The goal is to educate residents on hurricane preparedness and raise critical funds for the region. All proceeds from the Ride will benefit the American Red Cross Palm Beach & Martin County Chapter and Florida’s Coast to Heartland Chapter.
