BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) — John "JC" Conciardo has been the number one fund raiser for the annual Ride For Roswell for the past 10 years. This year he reaches his goal of one-million dollars collected in a decade of participation.
He credits his employer, West Herr Auto Group, for his success saying "The respect that the owners of West-Herr have garnered in this community is what made it happen for me."
He got involved with the annual event a decade ago when a co-worker asked him to ride along. He says "That was the first time I got on a bike in a long time and I rode 20 miles. And I'm still hurting. I raised thirty-two thousand that year"
This year John has already racked up over a hundred and fifty-thousand dollars in donations. That has put him over the million dollar mark. "I just have to do this-I gotta be passionate about it-and I got to make sure everybody knows about it because everybody you know has been touched by cancer."
