Today cyclists will join together to cycle to three blood drives thanking the donors that save lives during the Cycle of Life event.
The event is organized by Colleen Kelly, a cyclist and Bike Walk Connecticut member that experienced a significant trauma while cycling home from work on October 8, 2012. She said her heart depended on over 100 donors to beat again.
To thank all those donors, the Cycle of Life event will start by cycling from Mitchell Automotive in Simsbury, where the first blood drive will be held starting at 7:30 a.m. The cyclists then will head to Gaylord Hospital in Wallingford where Colleen spent over two months of inpatient rehab learning to walk again. And from there to Madison, where Colleen had her accident.
