On the first Sunday in May, 32,000 cyclists of all skill levels come from around the world to roll through every borough of New York City on streets totally free of cars. For one day, the roads are yours, the bridges are yours, the City is yours—there’s no better way to experience the Big Apple. Produced in conjunction with the City of New York, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour Presented by REI is the largest charitable bike ride in the U.S., with proceeds funding our free bike education programs. Last year alone, we taught bike skills to more than 17,000 kids and adults. When you ride with Bike New York, you’re helping us in our mission to empower more New Yorkers to grab life by the handlebars.
On Friday, December 2nd, EB Research Partnership Co-Founders Eddie and Jill Vedder attended the NASCAR Sprint Series Awards Banquet in Las Vegas Friday to pay tribute and surprise their friend Tony Stewart, the race car driver who recently announced his retirement. Both the Vedders and Tony Stewart were surprised though when Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendricks took the podium to reveal that the NASCAR community had made a donation of $1.8 million on behalf of Stewart to EB Research Partnership.
We at EB Research Partnership are beyond thrilled- and so grateful to be a part of this generous gesture to honor Tony. If you’d like to donate to this campaign, visit us at ebresearch.org/smoke.

In Mid-October, we held our second Community Council of the year, a series of podcasts about current clinical trials. Leading EB researchers discussed the clinical trials mentioned above in video podcasts posted on this page.
The researchers will be answering questions and we will repost them later next week in honor of EB Awareness Week. Please send your questions to us by email (email@example.com) by 9 a.m. EST on Monday, October 24th or post them to our Facebook page. The researchers will be answering questions about the studies, and regret they cannot address personal medical questions.

On Tuesday, May 17, 2016 we conducted our bi-annual Community Council webinar “Beyond Blisters: Managing Distress in EB.” We were lucky to share space with experienced individuals, who described some tactical ways to recognize and deal with stress, anxiety and not being afraid to ask for help. Listen to the recording and view the presentation Community Council May 5.17.2016.
