The South Florida Bike Coalition would like to thank the University of Miami Law School community for coming together during this year’s Philanthropy Week to raise $1,600 for our work in honor of Natasha Pettigrew. It has been an honor for us to get to know Natasha through her story, her friends and professors. As many of you know who follow this blog, Natasha was a student at UM who was killed last year while riding her bicycle. Her friends chose to honor her with a bicycle ride from the Campus into Coral Gables, to her apartment in South Miami and back to campus. Natasha’s Ride reconnected many people who loved her with bicycling – something that meant the world to her.
A special Bike Coalition Shout Out to Brian Sperber for showing us and his peers what leadership, dedication and friendship are all about. It’s a honor to have you in the Bike Coalition. Thanks for all that you do.
The South Florida Bike Coalition is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Funds raised in Natasha’s name will go to our work to improve and increase bicycling in the Miami community, specifically around the area’s colleges and universities. If you would like to make a contribution to Natasha’s fund, you may do so at http://tinyurl.com/forNatasha. Please be sure to make a note that your donation is for Natasha and also let us know if you wish to remain anonymous. Thank you.
