After more than 40 years, the Northbrook Velodrome needs a complete resurfacing. Volunteers and fundraisers have managed to come up with half the cost, but $150,000 is still needed. This outdoor cycling track serves professional racers as well as kids and hobbyists. A golden donor has come forward who is willing to match all donations, so give, give, give!
