Help Richie Lose Weight to Save His Life
Organized by: David Hardin
Meet Richie. At the age of 20 he tipped the scales over 435lbs. His doctor said to him if you don't change your life you will not have much of a life to live and that he would die at a young age. This struck Richie hard, and at that moment, he vowed to change his life. He started eating better, exercising, and making lifestyle changes. Almost two years later and Richie has lost 141lbs is down to 294lbs!!! What an accomplishment! But, there are still health risks, including severe back pain. He also has a lot of excess skin, which weighs close to 30lbs. The doctors told him that he cannot qualify for skin removal surgery until he gets down to 230-240lbs. This fundraiser is to incentivise Richie to lose the remaining weight and to help pay for the very expensive skin removal surgery.
