Hi everyone! Recently a member of my high school and community suffered from a cycling accident. While on a routine ride, he was hit from behind by an unknown vehicle, resulting in a hit-and-run. He suffered minor injuries and was hospitalized for a while, but his bike was completely destroyed. Thank god he was wearing a helmet; he was only left with a broken arm and rib. A few of his friends came together a while ago in hopes of raising some money to fund a custom bicycle project to surprise our friend when he gets out of the hospital! With the help of generous donors and a few local bike shops, we are raffling off bike components including groupsets, wheels, frames and apparel. We would really love to surprise our friend when he is done recovering from the incident with a brand new custom bike, so please help us out! Any donations are welcome as well!!!
As mentioned, a few of his friends have gathered the following for the raffle (all brand new donations from generous donors):
• 2014 Bianchi Sempre Pro frameset (stock set-up black size 55cm)
• 2014 Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 Pedals
• 2014 Campagnolo Chorus groupset
