Listen at 5:30PM for a special interview with Brian Sperber, who is helping organize the memorial for Natasha Pettigrew, a UM law student who was stuck and killed while riding her bike in September.
To appropriately honor Natasha’s memory, the University of Miami School of Law has teamed up with the South Florida Bike Coalition to organize a charity bike ride. The ride will take place on February 26th and bikes will be provided. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
On September 19, 2010, Maryland Senatorial Candidate and University of Miami School of Law student Natasha Pettigrew was struck and killed while riding her bike. An active member of the Miami Law community, she dedicated her life to bettering the lives of others and is sorely missed by everybody who knew her well. To appropriately honor Natasha’s memory, the University of Miami School of Law has teamed up with the South Florida Bike Coalition to organize a charity bike ride. Occurring on February 26, 2011, the ride will be approximately 10-miles long and will retrace some of the routes Natasha used to train for the various triathlons she competed in. Open to everybody, all money raised will go to create a fund in Natasha’s honor that will be used to enhance bike safety throughout Miami-Dade County, a cause very close to Natasha’s heart. Following the ride, there will be a memorial service honoring Natasha and the work she has done both at the Law School and nationally.
The ride will be on Saturday February 26th
9am report time/breakfast
