Help Piotr Glowacki
$7,282 of $6,500 goal
Piotr and our club members finally got his bike repaired from this catastrophic failure (cracked engine crankcase) yesterday and Piotr was anxious to get rolling at last as he was weeks behind on his goal to make it to Prince Edward Island.
Unfortunately only 40km out of Calgary he was struck from behind by a vehicle, and to all of our understanding lucky to be alive, but is suffering with broken bones and will be requiring surgery to treat his injuries. We are all very impressed with Piotr's resiliance to adversity and amazing positive can-do attitude. We are hoping to raise money to cover medical bill expenses.

Piotr is still in hospital. It looks like he may be released on Tuesday (May 23rd). He wanted to also thank everyone for their donations.
Piotr offered to help anyway he could with shipping bike parts to them from Europe if they ever needed any.
I can't just let one stupid driver (from Calgary, dammit) leave you with a bad taste of our wonderful foothills! So sorry this happened to you; heal fast, get well, and we hope to hear about you when you return!
