Bike Accident Fundraiser

Hello Summit Bikers,
Sharon Siler asked me to forward this fundraiser information concerning a serious biking accident last summer.  If you are around stop by or see the note about donations.
John Bowyer
I know Trevor Giles, his wife Linda & son Garrett, a senior at Summit High. They really need our support. Last August Trevor, an experienced cyclist, rode over to Vail to watch the Colorado Pro race time trials. He remembers starting back to Summit but doesn't remember the fall. He was discovered by one of the photographers or race worker, off the path & partly in the creek. He suffered a severe injury to his spinal cord which has left him a quadriplegic. I visited him in early December & he has a great attitude but he hasn't been able to return to work-and won't be able to-so the challenges are almost overwhelming. Please forward this to your friends & join us at Pugs or send a donation.
Thank you,
Sharon Siler
Please take 5 minutes to read this note about Linda & Trevor Giles.
Linda's husband had a tragic bicycling accident on Vail Pass; it has left Trevor a quadriplegic. Although they had health insurance, maxed their HSA contributions, as well as saved for retirement responsibly, the overwhelming expenses incurred are drastically depleting their monies.
Our wonderful little community is hosting a fundraiser to help offset some of their expenses. We invite you to attend the fundraiser on Saturday, February 22nd at Pug Ryan's, from noon until 3pm. Pug Ryan's is donating ALL proceeds to the Giles family! There is also a bank account in the name of 'Trevor Giles' set up at Bank of the West for monetary donations.
The reason for my note is to request a Gift Certificate and/or new item for the fundraiser's silent auction.
A tragedy of this kind could happen to anyone in Summit County, as we are all a very active sort! One wonderful aspect of living in our small area is the sense of community we all embody. Please take a moment to help me raise money via the silent auction with any size Gift Certificate and/or new item donation.
Please call me and I will happily pick up whatever donation you may have. Thank you for your time and consideration!
