The second annual She-Bikes bicycle ride for women raised more than $4,300 for the Salem County Women’s Shelter. Members of the Evelyn Hill Cycling Club presented a check for $4,332 to Brenda Lore-Randazzo, residential manager of the shelter, on June 3. She said she hopes to use the funds to buy a second industrial refrigerator for the site, which assists victims of domestic abuse.

“We are currently at capacity with 15 people, including some children,” Lore-Randazzo said. “These funds will have a huge impact on our ability to help them.”

The Evelyn Hill Cycling Club for women began the ride last year as a way to empower women to be fit and have fun while also supporting a cause that supports women. Participants also brought personal hygiene products for the clients.

“We had more than 90 women register for She-Bikes this year,” club founder Barbara Kornbluh said. “This event is truly women helping women.”
