Tutus and bicycles, UPAF Ride for the Arts
thousands expected to participate in bike ride Sunday, June 1
MILWAUKEE-It's that time of the year again to hop on the bicycle and raise money for the United Performing Arts Fund.
Because we're talking about the arts they have a whole bunch of creative ways to get you to get it in gear.
Heather Crouse of First Stage has volunteered for several years.
"We are the downtown century co-captains," she explained to CBS 58 News, "which sounds like a really fancy title. But we're coordinating all the volunteers in downtown and Third Ward areas."
Crouse and her fellow volunteers are known for their colorful costumes along the route as they cheer on the riders.
"We have added what we fondly call waist wear. Last year it was tutus. And this year you'll just have to come and see what we have in store for you."
"Milwaukee as our community is such a strength for our city," said volunteer Nicole Weeks. "Just to support what we can do just to keep that alive. Really it's so important to keep it going."
