Update - thank you everyone for your generous support - the cycling community in Halifax is awesome!  Kim received a cheque on January 10th and thanks everyone who donated.  She continues to recover at home and hopes to be back at work by the end of March.  Her enthusiasm for cycling was undamaged in the crash.

On December 23rd, Kim Watson was struck by a motorist on Portland Street in Dartmouth while cycling home from work.  She sustained a broken arm and back injuries, and her bike is badly damaged.  She's going to be off work for three to six weeks.

Everyone who knows Kim will tell you that she's one of the hardest working people they know, and one of the most enthusiastic cyclists around.  Kim works two jobs to get by - and still manages to cycle 14,000 to 16,000 km per year in all weather.

On the day of her accident she had multiple bright headlights and taillights and reflective clothing and could be seen from miles away.  But not, apparently, by the person who made a left turn directly into her turning off Portland Street onto the Circumferential Highway.

Kim needs some help to cover living expenses due to lost wages while not able to work, and needs to get her bike fixed or replaced too.  She can't wait for a possible insurance settlement - her friends need to help her out now.

Let's help fund Kim's expenses so she can get on the road to recovery.

Hi - Kim's resting and recovering at home, she has a broken right arm and a couple of broken bones in her sitbones, pulled muscle in her right leg and lots of bruises, but her spirits are good, she's looking to get back to work and to riding as soon as she's healthy. In her words, ..."I could have been so much worse, my helmet saved my life and wearing it right was the number one reason. I am getting better, already using a cane to get around the apartment, I will get better and be stronger, you wait. Thank you for the love your madcyclist Kimmie". What a spirit!
