Biking For Brains Charity Ride

August 12th, 2014

Did you know that cycling is the leading cause of sports-related head injuries?  Each year, nearly 90,000 people sustain head injuries due to bike accidents. 90% of those killed were not wearing helmets.

This August, two tenacious women from Duluth, MN, will strap on their helmets and ride 1,300 miles around Lake Superior.

Their goal: to spread bike safety awareness throughout the community and raise $10K in 20 Days to support Restart services.

If you’d like to make a donation, please visit https://givemn.org/project/bikingforbrainscharityride

Your support not only helps to spread the important message of bicycling safety, it allows Restart clients the opportunity to gain back independence and live healthy, satisfying lives.
