Ride to honor radio DJ Andy Blacksmith gets so much support it needs to postpone
A fundraiser named for late radio personality Andy Blacksmith got so much support that organizers were forced to postpone the event.
The Blacksmith Ride for Life was created to raise money and awareness for organ donations.
Blacksmith, the co-host of “Greg and the Morning Buzz,” died in June 2015 after a five-year battle with heart failure. He was in the hospital while waiting for a heart transplant.
Everyone who has already registered will have a spot when the new date is announced, organizers said.
Here is the note left by organizers:
Due to the overwhelming response for the Blacksmith Ride for Life, it has created some unforeseen circumstances. Unfortunately, we have to postpone the ride to a later date to insure the safety for all riders and to accommodate everyone that has signed up for this event. It disappoints us that we have to do this and we are deeply sorry for the inconvenience. As soon as we are able to give you a new date we will pass that information on to you. All registrations will be honored on the new date. Details, if necessary, on refunds will be available shortly. Thank you all for understanding.
