McCullen Broke Both His Arms

While competing in a local bike race, McCullen was accidentally clipped by another rider and took a major slam 35 MPH onto the pavement, breaking both his left collarbone and shattering his right wrist. Both arms were compromised, and he had to walk around with two slings and a cast, making awkward conversation about it from strangers in grocery stores who asked about it for several weeks.

Luckily he was among the company of some radiologists, good friends, and other helpful souls that got him to safety. He had surgery that week to repair his wrist, which now contains 9 screws and a metal plate. His collarbone is healing on its own, but will take some time and considerable amounts of physical therapy.

While he's been recovering well, the bills have started to roll in.  Although he fortunately has insurance, he is still facing thousands of dollars in medical expenses, because unfortunately this bike crash didn't happen in Canada or France. He is currently unable to work and is in need of your help.

Your contributions will help him pay for his hospital bills from the day of his crash, his wrist surgery, and ongoing PT treatments. Every amount helps, big or small!

Please give what you can to this amazing, wonderful soul who has been keeping a positive attitude throughout these terrible circumstances. Nothing would make him (or me) happier than to see an outpouring of support during this time.

Thank you so much!
