Dennis Crimmins, a firefighter from Point Lookout, New York, proudly sits atop his new custom-built Orange County Chopper that he won in a March of Dimes nationwide sweepstakes. The chopper was designed for NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt Jr. and donated by the Dale Jr. Foundation. The sweepstakes raised nearly $50,000 to benefit the March of Dimes® mission to improve the health of babies. Dennis and his niece, Linda Digrazia, attended a ceremony held at the March of Dimes national headquarters. The chopper was presented by famed rocker Dee Snider, National Spokesman of March of Dimes Bikers for Babies® and a father of four children, including two who were born prematurely. Dee partnered with Dale Earnhardt Jr. and the Dale Jr. Foundation to bring this fundraising promotion to March of Dimes Bikers for Babies.
