We did it! Campaign for the Bike Repair Hub at New Columbia a huge success

Bike Repair Hub Construction - 9.2.12By Noel Mickelberry, Development Coordinator

In a whirlwind month, we were able to raise $13,629 from our amazing supporters to make the Bike Repair Hub at New Columbia  a reality. Not only that, but the Bike Gallery is generously donating $5,000 to match these efforts.

We are astounded and honored by the support of this community dedicated to making bicycling more accessible to all.

It takes an entire community to build an innovative project like this. 90% of all donations were $50 or below, which goes to show how every little bit really does add up.

We want to recognize everyone that contributed during this campaign. The folks listed below are superheroes to us.
