He will continue therapy at a hospital in Florida but will be staying at home. His progress has been great and its looking very promising that he might walk again someday. It's been one month since the accident and the doctors said he is at where they hoped he would be after 3 months. Still no movement in his calves or feet, but his thighs are getting stronger and he is able to make small movements with them. Even if he doesn't regain any movement in the lower legs, the doctors said there are braces that would allow him to walk and stand with the muscles he can move. It will still take a lot of rehab, but it sounds promising.

Thanks again for everyones help and support!
Very good news. Stay strong for him.

Total sold is around 100. I've reached out to some friends and family who are helping to sell some tickets though, and have quite a few tickets I'm expecting payment for soon. But to use the old saying, I'm not counting my chickens before the eggs hatch.

I definitely need to sell more tickets than what the bike is worth or this whole thing is pointless, but if I don't sell all 200 I will pull a winner anyways. My goal is at least 150. If I don't get that many by the 28th, I may move the drawing back a week or 2 if there are no objections. It would be easier than refunding ~100+ people their money. Hopefully it won't have to come to that though.

I say wait until you get enough entrees. (Selfishly) it may reduce one's odds but I think most all will agree that it's the cause that's the priority- keep collecting! Hope he is continuing toward the best recovery possible.
