The response to last week's NY Times article by Samuel Freedman about the FLL team from I.S 98 has been extrordinary with many Ridder alumni and non alumni wanting to contribute to the cost of the team's trip to Japan.
This Friday the team has been invited to attend the State of the Borough Address by Adolfo Carrion at Fordham University where the Borough President will mention the "Ridder Kids" and their financial needs to travel to Japan.
