A candlelight walk and community vigil will be held to honor slain (if you will) cyclist Yannick Linke (Nils Linke) who was killed by an allegedly intoxicated motorist on Masonic last week. Tonight's gathering will shed light on both the life of Linke and a resolution "to make city streets safe for all users." Details:
Candlelight Walk and Community Vigil
When: Wednesday, August 25
Where: Gather at the San Francisco Day School courtyard (350 Masonic at Golden Gate Avenue)
Time: 8 p.m.
Those who cannot attend or want to help out are asked to donate to Doctors Without Border. Bike NOPA has more:
The family of the young man killed in a bicycle collision August 13th suggests that any donations made in his honor be directed to Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), a private, non-profit international aid organization that was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its medical humanitarian work. Sophia Linke, the sister of Yannick Linke, explained that her family discovered that he had donated to MSF shortly before his death. A Candlelight Walk and Community Vigil will be held Wednesday at 8pm to honor Linke, observe his tragic passing, and resolve to make city streets safe for all users.
