Robertson to pedal for a cause tonight
You might remember a story I did last winter on Nate Robertson working out at Detroit Mercy under the watch of their strength and conditioning coordinator, Nick Wilson, who has some Tigers ties. Well, Robertson is helping give back to the school and to charity tonight, when he joins in the Cardio for a Cause fundraiser.
According to a release from the school, a series of 216 participants will pedal for 10 minutes each on a stationary bike, for a total of 36 hours of biking. UDM basketball coach Ray McCallum started it off Wednesday morning. Robertson will end it as the final biker, pedaling from 8:20 to 8:30 p.m. courtside at Calihan Hall while the Titans take on Loyola-Chicago. Robertson is expected to sign some autographs afterwards. Fans at the game can make donations.
Proceeds from the event go to four different causes: UDM’s strength and conditioning program, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, The V Foundation for Cancer Research (that’s the foundation in Jim Valvano’s memory) and the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund.
