Krys Blakemore is a great bike mechanic and an artist, working over at 718 cyclery. She was recently hit by a car and suffered a broken leg, making it impossible for her to work.
Her boss, shop owner Joe Nocella, is taking up a collection. Here is more info by Joe:
On March 15th, Krys was hit by a car here in Brooklyn. After major surgery, she is unable to walk, work or ride her bike. Her rehab period will be extensive, but a full recovery is planned.
Krys was 718 Cyclery’s first employee, and is the kind of person who would help others at a moment’s notice. She is also the kind of person who would never dream of asking for help…
I am not that kind of person…please donate what you can to help offset the costs of her not being able to work.
