On August 26th 2017, Dr. Montgomery finished the statewide tour of 62 counties!

We honored EMS, fire fighters and law enforcement like no other.

The ride theme is a message to those impacted by Cancer and Leukemia:

“you suffer alone no more”

The 2017 Oneida County ‘ride for joe’

Dr. Montgomery carried “Da Moose” with the bag of honor to remember Mya Corigliano who could not attend that day.
