On August 6th, Les endured a tragic accident in his family pool that resulted in a serious spinal cord injury that has left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. He was originally scheduled to participate in the Rugged Maniac along with many other races. Les's passion for life and free spirit makes him one of a kind. Despite the severe injury he suffered to his spinal cord, Les's determination to recover is second to none. He's giving all of his strength to healing so he can be there for his family. There has been an overwhelming support for Les that has kept all of us going. We pray for a speedy recovery and for Les to have a second chance at life. Many people have asked how they can help. The number one thing Les would wish for his daughter is to go to college. With medical expenses uncertain we have set up a "go fund me" account for Les to assist with the expenses. Any donation while not expected is appreciated. Thank you all for the continued support while we go on this long journey together with Les. A group of his coworkers will also be running the race in honor of him.
