A bit of a cross-post but I doubt anyone will see it up in the charity rides section, so here goes:

My friends Jen and Randy Charrette are big in the cycling and outdoors scene in western Colorado - Jen is a mtn bike racer ( and Randy had a bike shop in Ridgway, CO. They were wintering in Sayulita, Mexico this year, travelling with their 7 and 2 year old sons when their 2 year old son Axel was horribly killed. I won't go into the details because the point is to celebrate his life and legacy, rather than get enraged over the details of this tragedy.

There is a memorial for Axel tonight in Ridgway, and there is a fund being set up in Axel's memory. Axel's Fund intends to bring cycling and outdoor activity to more kids. To donate, you can send a check made out to the Axel Charrette Fund, c/o Alpine Bank, 119 Liddell Drive, Ridgway, CO 81432, or call 970-626-4100 and reference the Axel Charrette Fund.
