Bike/Walk Alliance-Wichita will sponsor a benefit to raise funds for Spanish cyclist Diego Ballesteros on Saturday at Heroes Sports Bar & Grill, 117 N. Rock Island in Old Town.
Ballesteros was paralyzed from the chest down after being struck by a car near Wichita during the Race Across America in July. The funds will help pay medical expenses and other costs.
Local cyclists will have a group ride in his honor at 11:30 a.m. The benefit will be from 1 to 4 p.m.
The event will feature an update on Ballesteros' progress, guest speakers, and a silent auction.
