Bill Donels Memorial Fund

04/11/2021 UPDATE

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, our monetary goal for the memorial has been surpassed. A bench and plaque have been ordered and we are currently reviewing potential sites for installment.

On March 9, 2020 Bill Donels, a longtime member of the Springfield Bicycle Club, died quietly at his home. At his passing the Club lost a valued member and friend, and the cycling community lost a tireless and effective advocate.  

The Springfield Bicycle Club seeks to honor Bill with a memorial along one of the trails that were so important to him. We are seeking $2000 for a bench and installation that will bear his name. We hope you will be able to help to honor a man so important to Springfield cycling.

Progress: $ 3,181.00 received toward our goal of $ 2,000.00
