Coach Merel Cook-Medical Expenses Fund

This fund has been set-up on behalf of Coach Merel Cook who was seriously injured on Tuesday morning, 9/16/14.  While riding a bike, Coach Cook was struck by a vehicle in Virginia Beach.  All donated funds will be used for his medical/rehab expenses and may also be used to help him pay for his living expenses while he is on the road to recovery.


Coach Cook is a true friend, a great dad and a genuinely good guy.
Please give as much as you can.  No amount is to small - every little bit counts. Thank you for your support!!
