Although not riding his way up the charts as he once did, Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels of the legendary Run DMC will be pedal his way to victory during tomorrow’s ‘City To The Sand’ Bike Race. DMC will be one of 100 bikers to bike 100 miles traveling from the busy streets of New York to the placid beach lull of The Hamptons. The goal of the ride is to raise $1,000, 000 in college scholarships for inner-city New York Children. During the ride DMC will be rocking gear from his old friends at Adidas, wearing their new signature “Adidas Agilis” sunglasses. His contribution to the race will benefit his nonprofit organization, The Felix Organization.
The Felix Organization is focused on providing opportunities and life-changing experiences to foster children. DMC co-founded the organization with casting director, Sheila Jaffe. Over 300 foster children have benefited from the organization and been sent to the organization’s summer camp, Camp Felix in Putnam, Valley New York.
