NORTH KINGSTOWN – A North Kingstown resident is embarking on a 500-plus mile biking adventure, from New York City to Niagara Falls, to raise money for cancer research. 

Longtime resident Bob Wahl, a professor at Johnson and Wale, will be taking part in the Empire State Ride, a weeklong journey across the state of New York, beginning in July. 

Wahl, who has participated in fundraising events similar to Empire State’s for 20 years, said that his drive to help in anyway he can extends from a very personal, very tragic place, as well as a truly philanthropic one.
