Louisville Cycling and Triathlon does more than just ride bikes. We are dedicated not only to creating a bigger and better cycling community, but also to giving back to the Louisville community as a whole.
Several of our members spent their day off from classes as a day in memory of Martin Luther King Jr. and all that he stood for as part of UofL’s 8th Annual MLK Day of Service.
Team members Kelsey Voit, Jacob Holtgrewe, and Alison Mundell worked with the Shelby Park Neighborhood Association to pick up trash around the neighborhood. They worked with several dedicated community members to tidy up the streets, with neighbors joining in to help and passersby thanking the group for their service.
“It was really cool,” said Kelsey, “to see neighbors coming out of their homes to lend a hand or give us an extra trash bag. We even saw next door neighbors make new connections through this day of service.”
The work performed today by our team members, the Shelby Park Neighborhood Association, and all of the UofL students who participated in the event no doubt contributed to the creation of a stronger, more unified Louisville community. What better way to commemorate Dr. King’s life work than through these positive impacts on our community?
