Indian Waters Council - Boy Scouts of America Columbia, SC
Earlier this summer, our Scouts from Troop 413 from Columbia were involved in a tragic automobile accident. One of the Scouts, DJ Rish, suffered extremely serious injuries and spent many weeks at the Augusta burn center. In addition to the burns, DJ lost his leg, suffered a crushed vertebrae, and a broken pelvis.
Recently, DJ came home from hospitalization and began his long road to recovery at home. He is participating in extensive therapy and learning to use a walker. He even went to his troop meeting and rejoined his patrol, where he serves as patrol leader.
Throughout his journey the church family, Scouting family, and community have expressed concern and support and that has been very meaningful to the family and most appreciated. DJ needs our continued prayers and support. The Indian Waters Council established a fund to assist the family and that continues for those who wish to show support.
There are also "Team DJ" t-shirts available and all proceeds go to the family.
