Ride Guide Charlotte: Bike LUCK Charity Ride April 29th

In Charlotte, there is a very special woman doing extraordinary things for children with congenital heart disease.

Julia Engel, a 3 time Boston Marathon finisher, and road cycling badass was born with a VSD and later diagnosed with chronotropic incompetence and heart block. She has been able to enjoy biking and running thanks to 7 pacemakers in 31 years.

4 years ago, Julia founded Bike LUCK, a charity road event in Charlotte, North Carolina to raise money for a 501c3 non-profit, Camp LUCK. This camp provides a week long medically supervised camp for children with heart disease and they have the opportunity to bring 1 sibling along for support. This provides “heart kids”, like Julia once was, opportunities they would not have otherwise. Many of the “heart kids” are home schooled and not able to attend a regular camp with “normal kids.” The camp is held at Camp Cherokee in Kings Mountain, NC. They also provide other support services for children and their families born with congenital heart disease within the surrounding counties.

Camp LUCK

By spearheading Bike LUCK, Julia was able to bring together her passion for bicycling and the opportunity for heart kids to live life at a special camp for others like Julia with scars on their chest! In the pasts 4 years, through great sponsors and participation of this event, Bike LUCK has raised over $100,000 to support Camp LUCK.

Want to support this amazing camp? Come ride the Bike LUCK charity ride on April 29th in Charlotte!

When it comes to past and future medical expenses, lost income and other financial losses, the job is […]

There is finally a positive development in the fight against Contributory Negligence in North Carolina. Last week a bill called the “Victims’ Fair Treatment Act” was filed in the North Carolina Senate. If passed, the bill would finally bring North Carolina into line with all but 3 other states by eradicating this deeply unfair law. […]

This includes the importance of signaling your intentions when you are turning or changing lanes.

Daniel Brazil Jan 13, 2021

As a Minneapolis-based attorney, I live, work, play and bike in the city. Although my city might be known for its lakes and our infamous Juicy Lucy, Minneapolis’ dedication to having safer streets for all should be included in that list. To reach the safe streets goal, numerous non-profit organizations and groups are working tirelessly […]
