L’Esprit Road Race Raises Funds for Crusade for Children

by , VP Racing

This is a letter to Team Louisville by VP of Racing Mark Luking — Ed.

I met with La Grange Fire Chief Jim Sitzler today to make a donation of $221 to the WHAS Crusade for Children on behalf of our racing team ($1 for each racer that attended this year’s L’Esprit race).

As you know, we have been hosting a race at L’Esprit, just outside LaGrange for several seasons, and this year we were fortunate to have a very large turnout.

This seemed to be a great opportunity to give something back to the community of La Grange for their support in allowing us to use this venue.

I also spoke to Chief Sitzler and some of his staff about the possibility of a partnership with their Fire Department for future races to help raise money for this worthy cause.

One idea that we discussed was offering a hot meal, and perhaps some musical entertainment at Fire Station #3 for a nominal fee after the race.

I think that this will be a chance for us to build a positive image for bicycle racing in the community as well as adding to the fun of the L’Esprit Road Race.
