Olympian needs help

June 18, 2015 by John Charpentier (Register to contact)

From Graafin Ginger Leeuwenburg
To those who might not see this on my timeline or may be Olympians from another era:
I went to school with this brilliant young man (now in his 50's) with only his high school friends to come to his side ....a very special group of people I might add. His injuries from this devastating accident have taken their toll at every level after many years of challenges. To respect Bryans life, I won't elabourate as to all the details beyond his physical injuries, and why we as his classmates, have come together 40+ years later for him, but rest assured that in deciding on the legitimacy, true need or deservedness of this quest to fund the recovery of this extraordinary human being, you cannot start this kind of movement if they were not so.
If you have ever thought about a gift to someone you barely know or perhaps to a total stranger in the spirit of making the difference in the life of just one person....Bryan (Class of '73) should be that gift is ever too small
