Don't think this is a re-post. Couldn't find anything on the search.
I get Keigwins@tt emails on occasions and thought I would pass this one along. Sad new indeed.
I had the pleasure of meeting Eric when I took Keigwins 2 day school. He was one of my 1 on 1 instructor for a session. He is a super nice guy. My thought and prayer go out to him and his family.
"Hello. We have some sad news but a bright spot. We are announcing a very special trackday.
You may have heard that Eric Arnold, a beloved longtime KEIGWINS instructor, was recently injured in a tragic AFM race. His injuries are severe and numerous. We are relieved he survived. But we are deeply saddened that Eric suffered complete, irreversible damage to his spinal cord and will never walk again.
Tragedies like these are bad enough. They are made worse by devastating financial problems. Medical bills, rehabilitation costs, unimaginable expenses to adopt to a much different lifestyle.
We're hoping for a great turnout to our newly arranged
Eric Arnold Fund Raiser Trackday, Sunday September 27 at Thunderhill.
To maximize the funds raised we are accepting only normal payments. No trackday ticket pack tickets, no VIP passes. KEIGWINS instructors are paying full price, other workers are volunteering and contributing. During the trackday we will also be auctioning some very special prizes.
