Dear friends, it is with great sadness that we have learned of Alejandro's passing last night (5/8/17). He passed away peacefully in the presence of his family and loved ones.
His family is so grateful for the outpouring of love and support you all have given in the days since the accident. They continue to need assistance with funeral and medical expenses, as well as your thoughts and prayers.

As many of you know, our dear friend and longtime Breakers Academy alum Alejandro Lopez suffered life-threatening injuries in an accident this week. He is currently in the hospital in critical condition.
One of the small ways our community can show our support to Alejandro and his family is through a donation to help cover the many medical expenses related to his recovery. Please consider donating what you can to help the family at this time.
Please keep Alejandro and his family in your thoughts and prayers at this time.
