On Saturday April 8, 2017 we hosted our first annual fundraiser and bike party RAD! Cycles at 514 Studios in Minneapolis. This one-night-only pop-up exhibit explored the history of BMX in Minnesota and featured story telling by local cycling legends Shawn Sheely and Dave Christensen. We are so pleased to announce that the event not only sold out, but that we raised about $10,000, all due to the donors and volunteers who contributed in so many ways. A huge thanks to sponsors Ripple Foods, Perennial Cycle, Park Tool, and Land O'Lakes, Inc. Foundation who made the event possible and have lifted us to a new level. All profits from RAD will go towards our goal of hiring our first part-time staff person in the next fiscal year, caring for our growing collection, and hosting future events and exhibits. THANK YOU to our entire community of supporters that helped to make RAD a success.
