Keith's Bike Fund Update
Again, our sincere thanks to all of you who have already given so generously! Our campaign to raise enough to purchase the new bike for Keith is moving toward the goal. As of this writing, we have received aproximately $1100.
However, we still have a long way to go....so, if you haven't already, we 're asking you to consider a donation. Also, please forward this information to those who might know Keith, or to those who just might want to help. We appreciate it!
We are collecting money to replace Keith Grogan's ageing Quadra cycle. The brakes are failing and the axel is wearing through. We have done everything we could to keep this one running but it is at the end of its usefulness. We were not happy with the short life his current Quadra cycle had of only 4 years. The Church that Keith attends was kind enough to purchase a bike for him the last time. Its cost was $2500.00 and the replacement parts are specific to that company with no upgrades available.
We have, with the help of Keith's church and friends of his church, found a different company with all of the necessary modifications that Keith requires.
Lightfoot Cycles, located in Montana, has this beautiful machine (pictured above) which we are fund raising money for so we can purchase the Quadra Cycle from them.
First: internal gears with 8 speeds.
Second: Dual hand brake lever control, as Keith has issues with one of his hands.
Third: Fender kits and wide tires for stability and dryness.
It is a big goal of $5000.00 but give Keith trouble free riding in all elements for many years to come. So any amount you could give to this fund is greatly appreciated.CHECKS PAYABLE TO : Keith Grogan's Bike Fund
