Motorcycle Rider Down Fund

Coast Hwy, Oceanside CA. A 43 year old local motorcyclist, a friend and supporter to the motorcycle community, and local business motorcycle shop owner was taking a customer motorcycle out on a test run after repairs through a suburban area traveling at 30 mph when a driver backing out of the driveway, using only her reverse camera, came into contact with the motorcycle. The motorcyclist suffered multiple broken bones, incurred mass amount medical debt. He has endured multiple surgeries resulting in a hip replacement and suffered a heart attack on the table during an operation.

Through this ordeal he has remained optimistic, though he is a modest person he asking for food and basic necessities to get by. In addition, I have included my friend as a part of a local motorcycle Art show and Fundraiser at Legacy Brewing Co. 363 Airport Road, Saturday February 24, where artists and business owners have come together and donated items to raise money. We would like to also raise at least $3000 in cash to help out making ends meet.
