The Meeting of Two Icons
On the weekend of September 28th, one of our Old Guard, Dave Malec took on the challenge for an impressive 12th time the MS-150 City to Shore Ride, a 2 day bicycling ride from Cherry Hill to Ocean City, NJ to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. He joined over 7,000+ bicyclists and together with their supporters raised $5.9 million dollars.
Last year, Dave had the honor of meeting a very special participant, Eiko Tsai, now an 88-year old, active Chinese doctor and massage therapist. She rides in a dress and pumps on a 1-speed bike and has been doing so for the last 30 years surrounded by her team comprised of family and friends. During Dave’s first ride, he took a double take when he saw Eiko riding in a flailing white dress. When he asked “who was that”, he learned more about Eiko’s inspiring story.
Since 1979, Dave too has been an inspiration to us all at Pohlig. His commitment and encouragement ‘to be the best we can be’ never wavers. Not only does he participate yearly in the bike race, local Habitat for Humanity projects also benefit from his expertise and over the years he has mentored many wanting to learn from his keen eye for architectural details handed down to him by legendary craftsmen.
Dave, we thank you and commend your efforts in keeping our world spinning steadily forward!
