Our local Vélocity bike guru and ex-messenger Christian Myers was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and is currently undergoing treatment.  Christian does so much for our community -- let's rally around him and help him kick cancer!

Christian Myers and John Patterson co-founded Vélocity Bicycle Cooperative in 2010, seeing the need for a community-based and volunteer-run bicycle co-op in Alexandria to grow and empower a more inclusive biking community through affordability, education, and embracing the fun of riding. Christian manages the Vélocity Bicycle Cooperative bike shop operations and the youth education program.  

In addition to all the incredible work Christian does in the shop, he does so much in our community.  In partnership with the Alexandria Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee and the Alexandria Fire Department, Vélocity collects hundreds of unwanted bikes every year and refurbishes and distributes them -- along with helmets -- to children from low-income families.  They also have a Bike Scholarship Program to help residents from either low-income families, local shelters, and transitional housing to obtain a bicycle which can be used for free transportation, and they host free bike repair workshops with non-profits such as the Alexandria Boys & Girls Club.  The list goes on and on!

All funds raised will go directly to Christian to support him and his family through treatment and recovery; managed by the Potomac West Business Association (PWBA) Foundation, the charitable arm of the Del Ray Business Association.  Thank you in advance for your support!
