Bicyclist Raising Awareness for Senior Safety

July 2, 2014

A real estate broker biking across the state stopped in Charlottesville Tuesday.

Drake Van de Castle with Sloan Manis is biking across the Commonwealth to help raise awareness for seniors.

He's says senior safety is vital as we age, because many seniors can't afford to live safely.

Van de Castle wants to make sure seniors get all the help they need.

"Many senior can not take care of the financial needs in order to live safely in their homes. Whether it is a ramp or whether it is new windows whatever the case may be. It is a need that's unfulfilled in both Charlottesville and around the state to try and help seniors stay safe in their home as they age."

He hopes to raise $10,000 for the cause.
