Memorial Bench for Richard Blint
Richard Blint, husband of 51 years, father to 3, grandfather to 9, and friend to so many, instilled a love for biking and running in others. In memory of his extraordinary life, we, his family, would like to dedicate a bench in Stony Creek to him. He spent many early mornings motivating friends and family to run, even in the rain, on the trails there. Stony Creek is where he helped his family train for the Michigander bike tour every year, and where Grandpa's Gang was born. His love of biking extended beyond just family, as he volunteered for events that provided free bikes to children in need, because he believed every kid should have a bike to enjoy. In this way, he has created a legacy that we would like to honor. Please help us reach our goal so we can purchase this bench as a memorial.
