Cyclists go for unique ride in Halifax County to benefit God's Pit Crew
Cyclists cruised around Virginia International Raceway Friday
HALIFAX COUNTY, Va. – Some cyclists are helping out a local charity in a unique way.
People could also donate money and walk, jog, or use any form of non-motorized transportation.
The money will be used to help cover the cost of rebuilding a bike shop as part of God's Pit Crew's Fire and Faith project.
The project helped a family in Gatlinburg, Tennessee rebuild after last year's deadly wildfires there.
"We thought it would be very nice for the community spirit," said VIR Track Rental Director Kevin Massey-Shaw. "What the community has done for us here in the Danville area, it's our chance to give a little something back."
Around $1,500 was raised from the event.
