David Monz | 9th annual Closer to Free Bike Ride for Smilow Cancer Hospital

On September 7, 2019, UKS Attorney David J. Monz will be participating in the 9th annual Closer to Free Bike Ride for Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven. The Smilow Cancer Hospital is one of several treatment platforms of the Yale New Haven Health System, which has grown to be one of the country’s premier healthcare institutions. Over the years ridership has grown from 225 in 2011 to what is expected to be more than 1,500 this year. Dave will be one of fewer than 200 riders to have participated in each of the 9 annual rides and has personally raised nearly $50,000 for the Cancer Hospital over the past 8 years. All monies raised for the Closer to Free Ride directly support patient care and research at Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Cancer Center. UKS is a Bronze Sponsor for the event. Dave is a shareholder in the firm’s Environmental Practice Group who concentrates his practice on environmental compliance law, land use permitting and power generation projects. Dave represents both private and public sector clients in judicial and administrative proceedings under, among other laws, the Atomic Energy Act, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act and the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
