Tragic Bike Accident Kills Father

$24,740 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 256 people in 5 months
On September 5, 2018 Patrick Bettens, 41, was killed in a tragic bicycle accident when a motor vehicle driving erratically struck him on the side of the road. Patrick was training for upcoming triathlons. He served in the U.S. Army and was a Sgt. at the State Prison in Concord, NH. But perhaps most importantly, he was the father of two young boys: Colby, 14, and Travis, 16. The money raised will go directly toward his boys’ college tuition.

In just over three weeks, we’ve raised more than $24,000 for Patrick’s boys. We cannot thank you enough for supporting such a worthy cause. In the years to come, we know Patrick’s sons will be just as honored and humbled by your incredible generosity.

We’re thrilled to extend a big thank you to everyone who’s donated. In less than 24 hours, we’ve exceeded our goal of $10,000–all of which will go directly toward putting Sgt. Bettens’ two boys through college. Your generosity proves how many lives Sgt. Bettens has touched, and we’re honored that when his boys go off to college, they’ll know just how amazing their father was. With your support, we’re proud to continue fundraising for them. Thank you again for your donations.
