CycLouVia takes over Frankfort Ave. to help benefit WaterStep

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Bikers and walkers were able to enjoy today when streets where shut down for CycLouVia.

Streets were shut down April 13 from 2-6 p.m. on Frankfort Avenue, between Stilz Avenue and Pope Street.

During Sunday's CycLouVia open street event along Frankfort Ave., people were able to walk, bike, skate, shop and support a good cause by bringing new or used shoes to donate to WaterStep.

Louisville based WaterStep uses the shoe donations to fund providing safe, clean drinking water around the world.

The donation effort is part of Mayor Fischer's Give A Day week of service, which began Saturday April 12 and runs through April 20.

Shoes donated will count toward the week of service goal of 120,000 volunteers and acts of compassion.
