Hi everyone,

On Good Friday, a bunch of us attended the Good Friday road race. A lot of riders were injured in the crashes, including Patryk (that's how he broke his elbow), Jason and Alex B. The most serious crash involved a man named Christopher Uy. It was his first road race ever, and he crashed into a barrier on one of the first turns in the race. He had a serious head injury, and was kept in a medically-induced coma for several weeks while his brain healed. He is out of the coma, but his progress is very slow. He has a small small and his partner hasn't been able to work as she is helping him in his slow recovery.

I know that many of you in the club were quite worried about this fellow rider. Peter Sutton discovered today that the restaurant Mildred's Temple Kitchen is having a benefit for Christopher tonight. http://www.canadiancyclist.com/dailynews.php?id=18958
I can't can't make it on such short notice, so I emailed the restaurant to find out if we could contribute in any other way. The manager Maeve Gallagher informed me that they'd be happy to accept donations for Christopher's family at the restaurant. Christopher is a chef. They will deliver the donations to Christopher's family.

If anyone is interested, I will be happy to collect any donations on the Saturday or Sunday ride, and anyone can write a cheque made out to Christopher Uy, and send it to the restaurant at the following address:

Mildred's Temple Kitchen
85 HANNA 104, Ste 104
Toronto, Ontario
M6K 3S3

Thanks everyone.
Alexx

Jason, Lana and I were there last night. Great to see so many people turn out to the fundraiser.

Chris is out of the coma and is coherent, however has lost his short term memory since 2005. He seems to be progressing, his brother informed us last night. Helmet saved his life. Period.

I think it would be a nice gesture to donate something from the club. We'll figure it out next beer night. Comments welcome.

So glad to hear that he is recovering, and definately think that a donation from the club would be a really nice idea Dan.

Here is a picture his wife sent us of him and his son before the race. Jason Charette is in contact with her on behalf of me and the club.
