Loni's Pedal 4 Possible Fundraiser Page
Hi Family and Friends,
I am going to be riding in the Pedal for Possible Century ride which supports Craig Hospital patients on September 14, 2019 in honor of my friend, Craig Bimler.
Craig and his family were vacationing in Cabo, Mexico in April when Craig was involved in a traumatic accident in the ocean. Craig suffered traumatic injuries from a severe drowning as well as serious neck injuries. Craig was transported to San Diego where he stayed for several weeks and had an extensive neck surgery. He was then flown to Craig Hospital, in Englewood, Colorado, and is currently there with his wife, Kelly. He is working incredibly hard at Craig Hospital and making great strides! Both Craig and Kelly said they are thankful to be at such a wonderful place that offers state-of-the-art rehabilitations.
On August 6th, Craig's wife, Kelly, wrote the following:
"Craig has been working so hard to regain as much strength as he possibly can! You can see the determination in his eyes! I have no doubt that he will reach many of his goals. He has been working really hard on the mat to strengthen his upper body enough to have more balance, more stability, working on self transfers and posture! He has been using a manual chair to build up his upper body as well! None of this is easy. in fact, some days and sessions are very disheartening for Craig. He has alway been an athlete and known what hard work was, but this is at an entire new level! He has an amazing attitude and he gets up everyday with a goal and he will achieve it! ♥We have new movement in his left toes, (all of them) his left pointer finger is moving on demand, and he has some wrist extension- all of these new movements give us so much hope! Please continue to pray for healing and strength. Thank you so much for all the love and support!"
Kelly has created a facebook page titled "Prayers for Craig," in which she faithfully posts updates on his progress. Please check it out to learn more about Craig and his progress.
Craig's family has incurred an overwhelmingly amount of medical expenses. I want to rally around this family and help them in any way possible. That's where Pedal 4 Possible comes in. All the money raised goes directly to Craig Hospital patients. I emailed Craig's case worker and asked if the money that I raise can go directly to him. I am also including the go fund me page that was created to help the family.
First and foremost, would you please pray for Craig and his family? Please pray for healing, strength, perserverance, and comfort. Craig and Kelly have three children who live in Great Falls, Montana, whom they have been away from and miss desperately. Please pray for their children and all of their family and friends who are walking through this with them.
Second, would you please consider donating to help Craig and his family? I know they are so grateful for every dollar that comes in. Please see the go fund me page, as well as my personal Pedal 4 Possible fundraiser page. Insurance does not cover most of Craig's time and therapy at Craig Hospital, so every single dollar helps!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Please share this with anyone you think might want to ride with me or give.
I greatly appreciate you! Thank you for helping me make a difference in Craig's life.
