Simeon Smith Benefit Race

November 21, 2009

Our good friend Simeon has been in the hospital with strep pneumonia for the last 2 1/2 months. Due to his lack of a spleen which was removed after a bad bicycle accident in 2003 (which is when the above photo was taken and explains his lack of teeth) his body wasn’t able to fight off the infection. His wife and daughters have barely been able to see him and of course the medical bills have been adding up. He has had his right leg amputated below the knee, but even as a cyclist is still in the best of spirits. We’re throwing a benefit race for him to hopefully raise a little money for his family to help them through this tough time.
