Memorial walk in Georgetown today for Surinderpaul Basra

Memorial-Walk-May-211There will be a memorial walk in honor of Surinderpaul Basra and in support of her friends and family.

Basra, an employee at Essential Baking Company, was struck and killed one week ago at First Ave S and S Findlay Street.

Details on the walk from Seattle Neighborhood Greenways:

A family and community were torn apart by a horrific collision on Tuesday, May 14 as Surinderpaul Basra crossed at the intersection of First Avenue South and South Findlay Street right after she left after work at Essential Bakery. It’s the sort of tragedy we hear about all too often.

Please join us Tuesday, May 21st at 5:30 p.m. in front of Essential Bakery, 5601 1st Avenue South in Georgetown. We will walk where Surinderpaul Basra walked to pay our respects to her family and friends, and we will walk to send the message that we want safer streets for everyone in Seattle. These tragedies don’t need to keep happening.
