Long-time framebuilder, Society of Three Speeds member, and all-around good guy Christopher Igleheart was injured in a collision with a motor vehicle on Tuesday. It sounds like he’s taking a week to recuperate and will need surgery.
As a self-employed individual, the thousands upon thousands of dollars of medical bills that are coming is going to be a real financial burden on him.
So there’s going to be a benefit at Metropolis Cycle Repair on Friday, November 8th at 6pm. They are looking for raffle prizes and donations of beer and food to make it happen. If you have something to contribute, please email info [at] metropoliscycles [dot] com. (I’ll be dropping off some stuff soon.) And hope you can make it to the event.
And get well soon, Chris!
Metropolis is located at 2249 N Williams Ave in Portland OR 97227.
UPDATE 2 Nov 2013: The benefit will be at a later date and at a bigger venue to be announced. Metropolis is still accepting donations, though.
