Support for Brian Schmidt
I am a parent of a Cross Country and Track runner at Rock Ridge Highschool, where Brian currently teaches and coaches in Ashburn, Virginia. We are collecting funds to help offset his mounting medical bills. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL. The Schmidts have access to withdraw funds at any point during the fundraising.
Please check back here for updates on other specific efforts to support Coach Schmidt and his family.
From Mrs. Schmidt:
Dear family and friends,
Brian was in an accident yesterday while riding his bike. He is at the Trauma ICU at Fairfax Hospital with fractures, abrasions as well as internal injuries. He will need surgeries. Pray for Brian's healing and patience as he has a long recovery ahead. Please also pray for the young man who was driving the truck that hit Brian. Although I don't believe this driver was physically injured, he is just a little older than Jocelyn and we know that this has impacted him greatly.
Thank you to everyone that has donated. This is Brian's sister and I can tell you Lisa is overwhelmed with the generosity. Brian has such a long road ahead, but you all know what a fighter he is. He has toed the line for his hardest race yet. His eyes are on the milestones. Keep sending positive thoughts and praying for him, Lisa and the kids, the wonderful medical staff and surgeons. His first surgery was a great success so at least that's behind him.
