She was a volunteer at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks, feeding firemen and working on the bucket brigade. With the help of bicycle suppliers, she donated 500 bicycles that were raffled off to benefit the families of fallen firefighters. In April 2009, she was one of 150 participants who raised $13,764 for lung cancer research for the Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation in a walk/run in Central Park. She also donated time, money and bicycles to the Raggamuffin Parade and other local charities. (Gentile)
