BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Donnelly Cycling will be donating a portion of all proceeds from the sales of their new C//C cyclocross bikes and frames in the Amy D. blue color to the Amy D. Foundation.

The Foundation's mission is to encourage and support young women through cycling, It was established in 2013 by Dan Dombroski, following the tragic death of his sister, the pro cyclocross racer known to many as Amy D. The tattoo of a lightning bolt Amy bore on her wrist in memory of her mother was incorporated into the Foundation's logo along with its signature light blue color.

Donnelly Cycling's owner, Donn Kellogg, has been involved with the Amy D. Foundation from its beginnings, serving on the advisory board during its first year. This year, the Amy D. Cyclocross program will support two up-and-coming racers, Emily Shields and Katherine (KK) Santos, who will compete aboard Donnelly C//C cyclocross framesets, in the Amy D. color.

"I am truly committed to the support and growth of women's cyclocross," said Kellogg. "Being a part of the Amy D. Foundation from the beginning is a great honor for me. When we made the decision to build our own cyclocross bicycles, it was done with the very real ambition to give back to the sport, so it was only natural to come up with a creative way to support the Amy D. Foundation. We are incredibly proud to be a small part of this wonderful program."

"Having Donnelly and Donn Kellogg back and directly involved with the cyclocross program is very satisfying and rewarding," said Dan Dombroski. "Donn was very instrumental at the start of the Amy D. Foundation. His company assisted with the trademark legalities and documentation for the Foundation, while his team embraced the first selected riders as one of the team. It was huge help for everyone involved, so we are quite excited to have Donnelly be involved again."
