The Bill Davis Foundation was formed in memory of William “Bill” Davis. Bill was senselessly killed by a drunk driver while riding his bike on June 25, 2016. His widow, Brianne, formed the organization as a way to give back and keep his generous spirit alive.
We believe that all youth should be able to have a chance to participate in activities that will contribute to their happiness, health, education and overall general well-being. Every dollar you donate goes to help children take part in these programs.
Take my wheel is a term used by cyclists. It is a means of helping a fellow rider by allowing them to draft. The cyclist in front is breaking the wind and making it easier for the rider behind him or her. Bill Davis was a very selfless person, and was always helping people no matter what the situation. He was always very humble in his efforts to help, never expecting anything in return. Offering assistance was so much a way of life for him, that it was actually one of the last things he did here on Earth. During his last ride, he offered to let his friend draft, or “take his wheel,” because the rider was tired and was afraid he would have a hard time keeping up with Bill.
