AGNEWBRUSAVICH / CalBikeLaw.com is proud to have participated in Cycling for Heroes 2014 on the Santa Monica Pier on September 12, 2014. This incredible event raises funds to help wounded warriors climb the world's highest peaks and find a renewed purpose in their lives and inspire other wounded warriors.
AGNEWBRUSAVICH / CalBikeLaw.com issued a friendly challenge to cycling clubs that it sponsors. The challenge was accepted by Ironfly, South Bay Wheelmen, Big Orange, Peninsula Cycling Club, and Beach Cities Cycling. Each club started a team. AgnewBrusavich / CalBikeLaw contributed $250 seed money with the challenge that each team match that sum and, thereafter, donate more funds. The club that raised the most money has been promised a taco party compliments of AGNEWBRUSAVICH / CalBikeLaw.com.
Hats off and kudos to all five clubs. Ironfly met its goal and was represented by riders Melanie Phillips and Jennifer Triplett. Melanie and Jennifer each rode the entire three hours on Friday night.
Thank you to Peninsula Cycle Club which met its goal, and although they were unable to attend, donated its bike for the rest of us. Sara Munoz rode the Peninsula Cycle Club bike for the entire three hours.
Congratulations to South Bay Wheelmen and its representatives Carl Frushon and Tom Buescher who rode throughout the entire evening. South Bay Wheelmen exceeded its goal and reached the sum of $755.
Big Orange showed up with four riders who rode most of all of the three hours. Logan Lewis, 11, was one of the four and put in a very strong effort. Big Orange came in second raising $1,190.
Beach Cities Cycling was the fundraising champion with $1,775 and had six riders who took shifts throughout the night. They were led by team leader Fred Fasen and included Craig Barton, Lesley Seigel, Bill Ungar, Dave Blome, and Cassie Phan.
CalBikeLaw.com had its own bike. Gerald Agnew took turns on the bike with his son Jack and added another $500 for the night.
As a result of everyone's generous combined efforts, a total of $5,220 was raised for the Heroes Project at the Cycle for Heroes Event Friday night. As promised, Beach Cities Cycling will receive a taco party compliments of AGNEWBRUSAVICH / CalBikeLaw.com. Based on the above efforts by everyone, I trust that Beach Cities Cycling will invite the actual riders from Ironfly, Peninsula Cycle Club, South Bay Wheelmen, Big Orange and my son Jack.
