Juggling Raspyni Brother Gets Back on the Bike for Charity

May 13th, 2009 · No Comments · Giving Back

As a twirler who is also fascinated with all kinds of objects tossed into the air, I’ve been involved in juggling festivals for a number of years. Barry Friedman is one half of a wonderful professional juggling act, The Raspyni Brothers. I’ve gotten to know him some and he’s a great person, a loving family guy, and a terrific entertainer.

Barry had an unfortunate mountain bike accident in 2007 and he sustained a compound fracture of his clavicle.  As you can imagine, this is a pretty big deal for a professional juggler!  I was delighted to learn that he’s getting back in the bike saddle to participate in a 45-mile fund raising ride for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County.

Twirl Planet is proud to be one of Barry’s sponsors.  You can learn more about this terrific event and charity, and also lend your support, at the FirstGiving website.  No mishaps this time, Barry…and know that we are cheering you on!

And, check out The Raspyni Brothers while you’re at it.  Barry and his professional partner, Dan Holzman, are seasoned entertainers that have performed all around the globe.  They are one of the most successful professional juggling acts on the planet.  They are super talented, cool, and most importantly…hilarious!

Much appreciation to TEDtalksDirector for sharing their YouTube video.
