PEDAL PUSHER & NAMI PARTNER
June 14 will be ‘Pedal Pusher’ night at Luxemburg Speedway. Every spring, the racing community participates in the locally organized Pedal Pusher. In 2008, a small group of ladies planned the event as a simple bike ride to the racetrack. Over the years it has grown into a community fundraiser. The Pedal Pusher this year, “Tour de Ahanpee”, will have almost 40 riders biking from Algoma to Luxemburg.
Previously, the event has raised money for the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. After a few years of being successful with these efforts, 2012 brought an additional goal for the Pedal Pushers. On top of the money raised for the Breast Cancer foundation, the ladies were able to present Luxemburg Speedway worker, and loved by all racing family member, Dave Schlise, with a check to assist with medical bills associated with a new diagnosis of Colon cancer.
2013 brings another new endeavor for the Pedal Pushers. They have reached out to partner with NAMI, the Door County Chapter, in efforts to raise money to increase awareness of mental illness and suicide. In February, the group lost a close racing family member, Keith ‘Keeter’ Tebon, to suicide. Keeter was a huge part of the racing community and donated every year to the cause.
Please come enjoy a night of racing at the Luxemburg Speedway on Friday, June 14, at the Kewaunee County Fairgrouds. Main fundraising will be through previous T-shirt sales and sponsoring of the event, along with other events that night including ‘Pass the Helmet’, during intermission. All proceeds raised will be going toward the cause. Can’t make it? After the event pictures by Dan and Mary Lewis Photography will be posted on the racetrack’s website: www.luxemburgspeedway.com, along with its Facebook page.
