As most of you know, Rory Mead had a wreck on the last lap of the Steele Creek GNCC March 30, 2014. He broke his C5 & C6 vertebrae and underwent surgery to repair. We are trying to raise money for the outrageous medical bills and other expenses that he's encountered. Rory is one of the nicest guys you would ever meet and any amount would help! Thank you all so much for your generosity!

Just a quick little update for everyone...Rory is currently in the Beyond Therapy program at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA. He and Courtney moved to Atlanta in July and will remain there for at least 10 months. If you follow Rory on Facebook, he posted a video yesterday updating everyone on how he's getting along. I'm unable to post the actual video, but will include the link at the bottom of this post.

Rory's insurance ran out in August and he is now paying out of pocket for all therapy, rehabilitation services, and cost of living. This is where your donations have been MOST appreciated! NONE of them have been overlooked and we are all beyond appreciative of the kindness and generosity you all have shown in our time of need. Thank you so much!

So just got an update from my dad..Rory Mead made it to the Shepherd Center yesterday evening. Pretty exhausted last night. Today they put him in an electric wheelchair to give him a spin around. He IMMEDIATELY throttled for the gold and my dad had to step in and take him from "rabbit" fast to "turtle" slow. HAHA! Therapy begins tomorrow!

I want to say thanks to anyone who has helped support Rory whether it be through donations or prayer. He has made great progress in the past couple days, when I saw him 2 days ago he seemed wore out after only eating now he can move his entire upper body and is as positive and goofy as I've ever seen. Thank you everyone for the support!
