Rally for Mairin Din

Posted Friday, October 03, 2008 by Perry King

Lohud published an article this morning saying that ex-Bulldog great Mairin Din was seriously injured in a bike collision with a car near her college Swarthmore. There is a Walk rally Friday night at Irvington HS to raise funds for her family. If any of the Eagles can make it up there tonight to add their support, I think it would be great.

IRVINGTON – Village officials and residents will rally for a walk Friday night to support the daughter of Mayor Erin Malloy, who was seriously hurt after her bike collided with a car last week.

Mairin Din, a freshman at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, collided with the vehicle Sept. 24 while cycling near the campus. She suffered serious head injuries from the accident.

The community will join village and school officials for a “Walk for Mairin” at the Irvington High School track at 7:15 p.m.

“We want to give students and friends a chance to gather and reflect, think about the family and offer support,” Village Administrator Lawrence S. Schopfer said.

The walk will include a lap with lighted candles around the high school’s Peter K. Oley track.

Din, a 2008 graduate of the high school, ran for the Irvington cross country team.

Friends have created a fund at Sunnyside Federal Savings and Loan Association of Irvington to help defray medical costs and living expenses  for the family staying near the hospital in Pennsylvania.
