Wheels That Heal: A Bike Benefit for Liberty Kat – Sunday Jan 29th

Submitted by on January 10, 2012 – 10:01 amNo Comment

Events and activities to help Liberty Kat (aka Misty Green) are coming into focus.  She has staggering medical bills to contend with while she mends so a Facebook page has been established where you can donate via your Paypal account.  Go here to send some financial love her way.

And it gets better, there’s a benefit in her honor and to raise money on Sunday, January 29th.  They are securing a location and I’ll add those details as soon as I have them.  Until then here’s a copy and paste from the  Wheels that Heal Facebook event page:

We are working on a fundraiser for our fellow cyclist Misty “Liberty Kat” who was seriously injured on a group ride on the afternoon of 12/31. She sustained broken bones and even a fracture in her neck among other things–she was wearing a helmet or the damage might have been worse. We’re happy to report that Liberty is out of the ICU where she was Care Flighted from McKinney, TX and she seems to be recovering quite well with the help all of your positive thoughts and well wishes.

The fundraiser to help Liberty manage the financial burdon of this unfortunate accident is tentatively scheduled for January 29th, 1-6pm. We are awaiting confirmation on a suitable location. In the meantime, if you would like to donate, you may send money via paypal to at any time. Every little bit helps!

If you own a business or have connections to anyone who may be interested in donating cash or items for raffle/auction at the event, please contact either Toni Youngblood or Susan Reeves ASAP. We need to secure at least 2 kegs of beer for the event and we are likely going to need at least 2 portapotties. We plan to have entertainment, bike-themed contests, a raffle, etc. Please let us know what you can do to help :)

You can drop by the event page to sign on and  join the effort, and if you own or represent a company we could use some items to auction at the benefit.
