John Redman Assistance Fund
Organized by: Nick Grant
This Crowdraiser site was created by former basketball players for John Redman and his family.
Many have asked for an update on John’s status. After a difficult spring, John poured his heart into his rehab and therapy and is back to work at Dalton State. Assisting the legendary coach, Tony Ingle, John and the Road Runners are off to another hot start with a 8-1 record.
John asked us to share his appreciation for the prayers that he and his family have received. John would like to pass on the message that “the love and support that Brittany’s family and I have received continues to amaze me” and “I am working every day to get back to full strength.”
Recently, CBS Sports and Golf Week have covered John’s progress in the following articles:
As John continues to recover, we ask for your continued support and prayers. At this point, John still has financial obligations on various medical procedures that were performed and any further donations would be greatly appreciated.
Late Monday night April 28, 2014, John Redman and his fiancé Brittany Huber were headed towards Mobile, Alabama to prepare for their wedding that was supposed to take place on Saturday May 3, 2014. On their way to Mobile, the heavy thunderstorms that swept through the southeast caught up to them, which caused them to hydroplane and lose control of the wheel, in which the car flipped over numerous of times. Brittany Huber passed away on impact, and John Redman suffered severe head trauma as well as other neurological damage, and is now in ICU at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. Brittany was a 2008 graduate of St. Paul’s Episcopal High School in Mobile, Al, as well as a 2012 graduate from the University of South Alabama, also in Mobile. John Redman graduated from Spanish Fort High School in 2009, and from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Al in 2013. During Redman’s tenure at Spring Hill, he served as the student assistant coach for the Men’s Basketball Team from 2010-2013. John is the current Head Assistant coach at Dalton State in Dalton, Georgia. Brittany was working at City Park elementary, in Dalton, Ga as a paraprofessional from 2013. Brittany was an active member in the both the South Alabama and Spring Hill community and had a kind and loving spirit that was evident to everyone when she walked into the room.
Your donations are greatly appreciated, as we look to assist the Redman family with the necessary expenses. This fundraiser was developed immediately after we found out about this accident. It was created by Spring Hill College seniors Charles Gordon, Najgee Gatson, Kevin Smith and Nick Grant. We have reached out to Redman Family and they appreciate all prayers and donations that you are able to provide.
