WABA announces new funding from the Langenkamp family.
Last month, thousands of you turned out for the Ride for Your Life, a rally and protest demanding action from Congress to make streets safer for people biking, walking and running. Dan Langenkamp organized the ride in memory of his wife, Sarah Langenkamp, who was killed by a driver while riding her bike on River Road in Bethesda in August.
Yesterday, Dan Langenkamp announced a $75,000 donation to WABA to fund organizing work in Maryland. This, along with a new Virginia Organizer position at WABA, means expanded organizing capacity and staff presence in neighborhoods across the region.
WABA is deeply grateful to Dan Langenkamp for his courageous leadership in a time of profound tragedy, and to everyone that donated to his GoFundMe campaign, participated in the Ride for Life, and supported the Langenkamp family.
Mr. Langenkamp will announce several more grants to local organizations soon.
