Bruce Lindsay Rides Closer To Free

2013 was a good year for Bruce Lindsay. He was hired as Westport’s tree warden, the start of a job that he loves and does very, very well.

But 2013 was a tough year too. Lindsay’s father was diagnosed with glioblastoma — the same brain cancer that killed both Ted Kennedy and John McCain. Lindsay’s dad died 7 months later.

Today, Lindsay trades in his pruning shears for a bicycle. He rides 65 miles in the Closer to Free fundraiser. It starts and ends at Yale Bowl.

Lindsay — who has helped so many Westporters — is now asking for our help. His team hopes to raise $250,000.

All donations go to cancer research, and are tax-deductible. Contributions are accepted through the end of September. Click here to help.
