Cyclists Raise over $3,200.00 for Flood Victims

Several hundred cyclists showed up to Crazy Joe Cross at Bush Acres Tuesday night to show their support for those affected by the most recent flooding. Over $3200.00 was raised during the 3 hour event (organizers HeathBush AcresHeath Garvey of the First City Cycling Team runs the barriers. Photo by Curtis Heideman. still have some pledges coming in).  A large portion of the money came in the form of race registration donations but the silent auction, food and drink donations and donating just to donate also added to that total.  The money will be delivered to the Centennial Chapter of the American Red Cross which means it will stay in Northern Colorado.  A big thank you goes out to Ronny and Alli Bush for hosting yet another event.   I would also like to thank CamelBak, Rudy Project and Recycled Cycles for supplying items for the silent auction and to Tim Anderson, Steve and Melinda Stefko, Greg Thornton and Archie Solsky for their generous donations.
