As we all know, Paris Alexander is a Bay Area legend. He was an amazing fighter and is a respected coach who has touched the lives of so many. Paris is one of a kind. He is full of life, has extreme positive energy, and has a smile for everyone. He is athletic, energetic, and a trusted friend to all. Paris needs us all now to help him in the biggest fight of his life.
On Thursday evening, September 20th, Paris was involved in a serious accident on his bicycle. He fractured his neck (the C3 vertebrae) and went into immediate surgery at SF General. He is currently still in the ICU but is showing promise with leg movements and in some of his other body parts. Paris is in good spirits and we are all choosing to believe that of all people, Paris is just too strong and stubborn to let this take him down forever.
Nonetheless, Paris will have an extremely long road of rehabilitation in his future. We are raising money to help with medical costs and his cost of living. Any small amount is appreciated. Please share this with anyone and everyone that you know who would like to help Paris.
If you prefer, we are also accepting donations at Rise Combat Sports, 123 South Van Ness Ave, SF, CA 94103.
