April 22, 2006 § Leave a comment
Seattle photographer Karen Johanson expects to pedal for hours, at almost-mile-high elevation, to complete America’s Most Beautiful Ride, a 100-mile, one-day bike ride around Lake Tahoe benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Her challenge is one faced by every participant in Team in Training, a program that encourages people to train for events ranging from century cycling events to marathons and triathlons, to raise money for research, patient services, education and more. For the Tahoe event, participants are required to raise $4000 in a four-month timeframe. This event is part of her fundraising efforts.
The fundraiser features Seattle electronica DJs Slantooth and Ted Lee plus other Northwest talent still to be confirmed. Doors open at 8. Cover is $5 and all proceeds from the door (beyond a nominal fee to the club) go directly to Karen Johanson’s fundraising campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Arrive early to bid on silent auction items including very cute sportswear from Vanderkitten; a private lesson from Fluidride owner/coach and professional bike racer Simon Lawton; Sportslegs products designed to help you survive the most demanding physical challenges; a bike tune-up from 2020 Cycles, the best new bike-related addition to east Capitol Hill and the Central Area; and a free portrait session from Karen Johanson Photography.
