As the C2C4FSHD Team prepares to make its triumphant return to Brooklyn after a grueling 4,200 mile, 54 day
journey across the United States, the Chris Carrino Foundation for FSHD would like to extend an invitation to
everyone to join us as we celebrate the team’s arrival at the Barclays Center on Wednesday, July 19 th at
There are two exciting, free opportunities to be a part of this very special day. The first is by joining the team
at the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge (near City Hall) and bicycling over the bridge and helping to
“break the tape” after a short, 3 mile ride to the Barclays Center promenade. All you need to do is bring a bike
and a helmet and you are welcome to ride with the team! The second is by simply joining us at the Barclays
Center and cheering for the team as they complete the final few miles of their 4,200 mile odyssey. Once at
the Barclays Center (near the Flatbush Avenue/Atlantic Avenue subway entrance), the celebration continues
with a huge party, complete with food, beverages and entertainment.
