A Brewer boy’s bicycle ride really paid off Wednesday for some animals in need.
This is the third year 12-year-old Matt Gross has organized “The Ride for the Wet Nose”.
It’s a fundraiser he created to support pets at the Bangor Humane Society.
Matt collected pledges and donations for the ride, then hit the road for 25 miles.
After it was over, he presented a check to the Humane Society for $2,000 – the most he’s ever raised.
By the way, this was also Matt’s birthday.
