I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has donated and offered words of encouragement to Ryan Burns and his family during a very traumatic time in their lives. YOU in the community have raised just over $30,000 to ensure that his family will be secure while Ryan attempts to recover from his injuries over the next 8-10 months.

"Thank you" doesn't seem to say enough but there are no words that can express how much your caring has meant.
