On March 30th, 2007 Chris Zito was headed home from work (on his bicycle natch!) when he was hit and runned. The cowardly POS didn’t even slow down. To add insult to injury two cars following close behind the perpetrator ran over Zito’s bike and also did not stop.
Luckily Zito was able to dial 911 on his cell phone and summon help. All told he ended up with several broken vertebrae, a broken collarbone, a broken elbow, and a near week stint in the hospital.
He, like many Americans, does not have health insurance, and with the body cast he will be wearing for the next several months he is not able to work.

When we heard about this we knew that the scAVENGER! bicycle race would be a perfect opportunity to raise some money on his behalf. All proceeds from the entry fees will be going to his medical bills and lost work.
If you are able, I would suggest donating a few hours of your paycheck to the Chris Zito fund.
