As we reported last week, Seattle’s iconic biking patriot Alvin Graham Jr was assaulted outside the Seahawks/Panthers game. Like at so many major sporting and community events, Alvin was riding his bike on a stationary trainer to raise money for veterans’ and their families.
According to Facebook posts, he is having surgery for broken bones in his face after a man in a Seahawks jersey punched him.

The current page was set up by a family member of Alvin’s.
Get well soon, Alvin! Here’s a Q13 report with more details on what happened:
