Coca-Cola is presenting Please BE KIND to Cyclists a grant check for $25,000 at our gala this Saturday, November 12th. Initially, we were approached by Coca-Cola after the tragic accident of a UT student, Haifa Abubaker, on July 3rd. The person who saved Haifa, happened to work for Coca-Cola and he let the them know about our organization's efforts to raise awareness. Haifa lost part of her right leg as a result of the accident.

This is a big deal for our community that Coca-Cola is supporting our cause. Coca-Cola's grant will help fund the Victim Relief Program which is a program intended to help injured cyclists with financial assistance, emotional, physical, and legal support.
I am looking forward to seeing you all at our Gala on Saturday night.
