Friends of injured cyclists Brendan Lyons and Lorena Evans are organizing a impromptu benefit to raise money for medical bills.
The event will take place be held at Old Chicago near Campbell Avenue and Glenn Street on Sunday, October 13 at 6 p.m.
Here’s a snippet from the Facebook event:
As many of you know, Brendan Lyons and Lorena Evans were hit by a car last Friday while riding, and Brendan has suffered severe injuries. We are going to have a very informal benefit this Sunday at Old Chicago to:
– Try to raise some funds for Brendan and Lorena, as they get through these difficult times.
– Gather well wishes for the two of them (we’ll have card(s) that you can sign)
– Brendan is going to need our support over the long term, so we’ll be talking about how we can all do that.
– Let them know that the cycling community has them in their hearts!
Please join us on Sunday at 6:00 PM at Old Chicago (Campbell south of Glenn) and offer whatever support you can. All monies raised will go directly to Brendan and Lorena.
There will also be a donation jar at TriSports retail location if you can’t make the event.
