Congratulations to Di-Shon Davis, our first VéloCity Bike Scholarship awardee!
The VéloCity Bike Scholarship is funded through a grant from the Westminster Presbyterian Church and is conducted in partnership with the Carpenter’s Shelter of Alexandria. Di-Shon is pictured with VéloCity Maintenance Class Instructor Ron Kellis.
How long have you lived in the area?
When did you start volunteering at VéloCity?
What made you want to become a Véloteer?
My primary motive was to offer some of my time and talent to a great organization.
What keeps you volunteering in general and why do you like volunteering at VéloCity?
It provides a sense of community and “paying it forward” so to speak. VéloCity is a fantastic non profit providing a very valuable resource that is not only fun to participate in but brings a much needed service in our area.
How do you usually use your bicycle? (leisure, transportation, fitness, etc.)
I have two rides: mountain and road. Both are for sport.
Describe the most enjoyable time you’ve had while on a bike?
Bikes have always been a way for me to connect to others while also enjoying and exploring the outside world.
Thank you to our community for the incredible support that you showed us last night at Port City Brewing Company
! We packed the house, drank great beer, and raffled off prizes from Haute Dogs & Fries
, Holy Cow – Del Ray
, Old Blue BBQ
, and more.Between the beer sales, raffle tickets, and direct donations we covered our goals and will be expanding our mobile capabilities as we hoped!
If you didn’t make it last night – never fear, you can still donate on-line to support what we’re doing.
We also want to mention another chance to support our community. As you may have heard, a Del Ray institution, Al’s Steakhouse, recently suffered a fire on their grand re-opening day. To aid Al’s Steakhouse and the Breeding family, the Del Ray business community is coming together for a fundraiser at Holy Cow Del Ray this Thursday. RSVP on Facebook.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your support. Hope to see you on Thursday!
