COME THRU FOR CHEW
Come to an exciting fundraiser for Danny Chew, creator of the Dirty Dozen Bicycle Race here in Pittsburgh, and lovingly known as The MILLION MILE MAN for his goal of riding a million miles on a bicycle in his lifetime. He was paralyzed last Fall in an accident while riding, when he suddenly passed out. Click here to read a letter from Danny.
The event will be held on June 17th from 4-10pm, in the large parking lot in front of the World’s Largest Bicycle Museum, Bicycle Heaven, on the North Side.
