Tiny Tim's:Keep on kickin' campaign

During opening night of the Tenth Annual White Album Christmas show, I, along with many other performed a variey of juggling, acrobatics and aerial acts throughout the show. This year, my 5th year participating in the show, I was given an opportunity to perform a stilted acrobatics act. Near the end of my stilted act on opening night, after catching a stunt, my knee gave and pain raced through my leg as I completed the few remaining stunts onstage.  Knowing something was wrong I promptly returned to the green room to investigate. After unloading my stilts and getting some eyes on it it was concluded that whatever was done to my knee would have me out for the run of shows. This greatly affected 3 of the group acts on stage that I was involved in as well as the role of lead elf that was mine as well. Opening night concluded and talks of rewrites floated around the green room. A good nights sleep later, myself and the members of rad gathered extra early to put together 3 new routines to replace the ones that would be missed due to my injury. Incredibly enough, the show would go on, and all 8 nights  would be performed as planned thanks to the flexibility and ingenuity of my fellow acrobats. However my knee would not be as joyous as a tale. Evaluations indicate major damage to soft tissue in my knee, an outcome that vexes a 24 year old coffeeshop manager and student. How would I pay for this? I am here asking you for a gesture of generosity. A few dollars contributed greatly improves my ability to get on the right track to recovery and put me back on stage where I belong.  My name is Kylee Wegner, and I am an acrobat with the Rose City Acro Devils and a stiltwalker with MarchFourth.  I thank you for your contribution and for listening to my story. Have a happy holiday season.
