On Tuesday, May 25th TimeCycle founder and owner Eric Nordberg's house in Southampton, PA burned down. Everything in the house was destroyed. Eric's wife, and his two younger daughters were in the house at the time of the fire. His wife and middle daughter remain in critical condition at Temple and Chop. Doctors are still unsure as to if they will pull through. The eldest was in school at the time while tragically, Eric's youngest infant daughter died from injuries received during the fire.
In the weeks to come there will be a series of fundraiser events to help support Eric Nordberg and his Family. Anybody interested in helping in any way is very much appreciated. We need donations in any form, including: hosting venues, catering, adult beverages for the events, merchandise for raffles, various event prizes, and general volunteer services.
The Philadelphia Bike Messenger community has always been a close knit group. Many couriers today and in the past worked for Eric Nordberg at Timecycle. He has always done what he could for us in our times of need, and now we are striving to repay those gestures.
Donations are being accepted through PayPal at http://nordberg.phillybma.org. The site will also post volunteer opportunities and events to help the Nordberg family.
