For the last 20 years, WPTV News Channel 5 Chief Meteorologist Steve Weagle has been making his Ride for the Red Cross to mark the beginning of hurricane season and to raise awareness of the Red Cross in the community. This year, Steve will make his 21st annual ride on May 27-31 from Sebastian to Boca Raton.
This year’s goal is to raise $250,000 to benefit the American Red Cross Palm Beach & Martin Counties Chapter and Florida’s Coast to Heartland Chapter. Additionally, Steve’s Ride aims to educate residents on hurricane preparedness while raising critical funds for the region.
You can help Steve reach his goal by making a financial contribution. Your generosity will help the Red Cross to prepare for and respond to disasters, and help communities recover when disaster strikes. You can also come out and cheer Steve on as he makes stops twice a day to broadcast live on WPTV! Check redcross.org/weagleride for a list of stops as they are announced.
Local partners and sponsors can join us in making this a successful event. For more information, contact Ed Jachim at 561-650-9116 or email@example.com.
