Pedal Power Fuels AIMC Berkeley Student

Heidi Hellmuth happens to spot AIMC President Yasuo Tanaka taking a walk along the Embarcadero and offers him a ride in her gold pedi-cab.

On any given Saturday, you can find Heidi H. along San Francisco’s Embarcadero pointing out the sights to her passengers as she leans into her pedals and the bicycle’s chains on her Gold-colored pedi-cab whir.

At San Francisco’s Cherry Blossom Festival last weekend I stumbled across a flyer advertising an invitation to hear a cancer patient tell her story of recovery at Konko’s Church of San Francisco in Japan town. Since cancer runs in my family across three generations, and most recently for my parents, I did not think twice about going to hearing her presentation. It was well worth going!
