On a sunny Saturday morning in February 2011, Nathan Krasnopoler, a sophomore at Johns Hopkins University, was riding in a bike lane near campus when he collided with a turning motorist and became trapped under her car. Denied oxygen, Nathan eventually died from his injuries. Nathan ‘s family will celebrate his life and honor his memory at a candlelight vigil at the accident site, one year later on Sunday, February 26th at 6:30pm at 116 West University Parkway.
A memorial bike ride will take place from the same location beginning at 5pm. Friends, family and students will light candles and remember Nathan with a minute of silence and then walk three blocks to Charles Commons (Charles and 33rd) for a brief ceremony.
