Cyclists Needed For Simsbury Charity Ride

Colleen Kelly Alexander has a goal. She wants to be an example. She wants, as she puts it, “to be a light for others.”

To do that, she says, she has a series of challenges to face. First is her physical recovery from the severe injuries she sustained after getting hit by a truck while riding her bike on the Boston Post Road in Madison.

Second is figuring out how to pay for that recovery; she will not be returning to work any time soon, so she lost her job and her insurance is due to run out at the end of December. And third is to make sure she keeps up her spirits. She does not want to succumb to despair. And that’s where she’s asking for help.

Help Coleen reach her goal while cycling the beautiful Farmington Canal Trail this Saturday, October 20th. This is a smooth, fast, safe trail. The trail is paved, and the ride will be fully supported. All funds will benefit the Gaylord Sports Association. The ride will begin and end in Simsbury, CT. Parking will be available.
