Chris Cono Dies in Crit: Memorial Fund
It’s difficult to promote and support every cycling related campaign out there, but every so often we just have to single a few out. This time around it’s to bring awareness to the Chris Cono fund.
Back in May, Christopher Cono died during a crit race. He was one incredibly passionate cyclist who along with racing also organized the Fortune 700 race series, and worked for Velo Pasadena.
His friends and family set up a memorial fund through Go Fund Me, and they are only $500 from achieving their goal. Word has it that even Lance Armstrong was touched so much by this story that he contributed to the fund.
Chris leaves behind a wife, Akiyo, and two sons. All proceeds will go directly to Chris’ family.
The financial goal is just a starting point to cover immediate expenses however the long-term goal is much greater. Anything you can do is immensely appreciated.
