Sher Kung Memorial Ride
Over 400 hundred individuals gathered Friday to honor and remember Sher Kung, who was hit and killed recently on Second Avenue while bicycling to work. Several individuals paid tribute to Sher Kung, including Mayor Ed Murray.
"By cycling, [Sher Kung] was making the streets safer. She was making the city healthier. Regrettably that very simple act cost her her life... I'm so sorry we didn't act sooner."
