Colt Prime Benefit Fund

Dear friends, I'm asking for your hearts and your help. Many of you know my dear friends Jody and Troy Prime and their boys; Cade and Colt. On Sunday, June 9; 17-year-old Colt suffered a life-threatening and debilitating injury while swimming in a shallow pond with friends. Colt is currently in the ICU at ProMedica's Toledo Children's Hospital with a broken neck and what we all hope and pray is temporary and limited paralysis. Colt is in need of all of your positive thoughts and your most sincere prayers. Colt has a long and tough journey ahead of him and Jody and Troy will incur astronomical expenses that most don't ever expect to experience, let alone on a Horse Trainer's income. I am asking everyone to please open your hearts and dig deep within your budgets to help this family who has always been there themselves, to help others when in need. If anyone has questions or would like updates on Colt's condition, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Jody and Troy are at Colt's side constantly. They appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers and apologize for not being able to speak with or update individuals themselves. 

Thank you to all of those who have donated thus far. Your generosity, prayers and support mean so much. At this point we will continue collecting donations as the money we have collected so far will be put to use. The money will be used directly for Colt's benefit and will be spent on a handicap transport vehicle, an electric wheelchair, ADA  required renovations in the home, miscellaneous hospital equipment, medical bills, etc. 

The money is being withdrawn by Colt's grandparents, whom have opened a special bank account to safely protect and control all donations.
