Medical bills for Jay Ruiz

Please contribute to cover medical costs for Jay Ruiz, founder of Brooklyn Bike Patrol. Jay suffered two heart attacks while uninsured.


For a few years Jay has been out on the streets of Brooklyn at least six nights a week making sure the women of Brooklyn are safe. If Jay has ever walked you, your friend, partner, sister or mother home at night, or if you support the work of Brooklyn Bike Patrol, or would simply like to help out our friend and neighbor, Jay, please contribute what you can.


Jay is an outstanding civic caretaker, volunteering his time night after night and expecting nothing in return. In fact, he won't even accept tips. Let's show him our gratitude by covering his medical expenses.
