We ❤️ Thad Ferrell Recovery Fund

On Saturday, September 10th, due to a major and tragic miscommunication, Thad fell over 100 feet from the top of Holy Grail (which he had just sent). Miraculously he is alive, has no internal injuries or paralysis. However, he sustained major traumatic injuries to his jaw, pelvis, and right ankle, among many other things. He will have numerous surgeries, and recovery will be a long process.

We are raising funds to help he and his family, as Stacy will be unable to work for at least a couple weeks, and Thad will be unable to work for the foreseeable future. It is hard to say exactly how much will be needed at this point, but we will start with $35,000. As well, plans are already in the works for a local fundraiser in Durango. Thank you so much for donating.

And thanks again to the incredible group of WFR-certified climbers who saved Thad's life, as well as the excellent SAR team who rescued him, the awesome Flight For Life Crew, and the attentive and kind doctors and nurses at Mercy. 

Please email [email redacted] if you would like to offer additional assistance for the fundraiser or anything else, or if you just want to send love to Thad.
