"Go Fund Me" Request for Help (Steve Niewald)
Many of you have had the opportunity to meet and ride with Steve Niewald and his wife Julie. Steve rode with the club on several occasions and was looking forward to becoming a full and active member upon his retirement last year. Unfortunately those plans were put on hold after Steve was involved in a random but devastating bike accident. While riding his gravel bike on the Minnesota river bottoms, Steve had an “over the bar” fall that damaged his spinal column and he now has multiple physical limitations. Steve has been recovering in a rehabilitation facility for the past year and will soon be heading home to a new apartment with Julie. For Steve to function and thrive in his new reality, Steve and Julie will need a wheel chair accessible van. To help Steve and Julie regain their freedom and pursue new adventures, Steve’s friends have established a “Go Fund Me” Page” to help with ongoing expenses, including the purchase of a van. Steve is one of us, an avid cyclist, who can regain some independence by your generosity. We hope you can help Steve and Julie.
