“Angles vs Drunk Drivers”
Members of the Santa Fe Police Department are honored to participate in a Motorcycle Run to benefit the Peshlakai family who lost two young women following a drunk driving crash.
March 5, 2010 Peshlakai sisters Del Lynn, 19, and Deshauna, 17, were on their way home from a basketball tournament when a drunk driver slammed into the back of their car and killed them on Cerrillos Road.
The family is hosting the 4thannual run to raise money, push for tougher DWI laws and spread awareness about the dangers of driving drunk.
There are two routes scheduled for Saturday, June 22, 2013:
The first starts in Naschitti, NM with registration at 7 a.m.
The second starts in Farmington at American Home Furnishings (1001 W Broadway Ave) with registration at 8 a.m.
Both routes will meet at San Felipe’s Casino Hollywood around 1 p.m. and follow I-25 into Santa Fe ending with a memorial service at the crash site near the intersection of Cerrillos and Cristos. That is expected to start about 2 p.m.
Registration for the ride is $25.
Santa Fe Police will be helping with the escort and participating in the memorial.
