The event began in 2013 when Dobens made the trek alone raising $3,508 for the cause. Last year 28 riders raised $181,225.
This year, the companywide ride brings together agents from Connecticut, Westchester, Aspen, LA, Florida, Long Island and New York City and more than 75 riders will be participating in both the 100 mile “Century” ride or the 35 mile “Sprint” ride.
The goal this year is to raise $250,000 for the charity.
