UPDATE: Thank you to everyone for your support!  All funds have been received by the Syrrist family and the fundraiser is now closed.  If you would like to get in touch with Mary you can email her at mmcerkey@vt.edu.

Upon hearing about Mary's bike accident one of the first things people ask is, "how can I help?"  This is your chance.  While Mary and Chris focus on recovery they also are sidelined on their income to cover basic needs, such as child care, rent and utilities. We have negotiated a reduced rate from a local daycare center, but we need the community to come together to help cover the costs.

Thank you for your support!

Everyone,

Chris and I are newer to the Charlottesville community, and yet we have experienced such a huge response of support from so many who don't even know us, that there is no proper way to say thank you
Just know that we are aware of your generosity and are so truly grateful for all the love, help, and support.

I hope you come to know the Syrrists well, as people who will also be there for anyone in the community in need, and as lovers of cycling, racing, and all things bikes. 
We will be volunteers at many bike events, and be present in the community where we are needed! I wish for a speedy recovery so that I can soon be riding and racing on the road again, and so I can be there for all of you in future need.

With all possible love,

Mary and Chris Syrrist
