RIDE 2 SUPPORT YOSHIO!
Yoshio Garcia, our close friend and teammate, has been in the hospital since being hit by a car on his way to work on January 14. After two tense weeks in intensive care, he has stabilized considerably but remains in a coma with serious brain injuries. Because Yoshio does not have health insurance, we are asking you, our fellow cyclists, to contribute to his medical fund as you are able. Coates Cyclery is hosting this ride in order to help raise sufficient funds to ensure that Yoshio can continue to receive the best care and rehabilitation possible. We believe in Yoshio's strength of body and strength of spirit.
We believe that Yoshio will heal. We believe, so we ride.
