Default New James Marshal fundraiser

     

New Fundraising Campaign Launched For James Marshall
HelpJames.org announced today the launch of a new fundraising campaign for James Marshall who was tragically paralyzed during the 6th round of the Amp?d Mobile Supercross series. Marshall who has experienced miraculous signs of potential recovery now faces a challenge of $125,000 in rehabilitation bills starting June 1st as his health insurance expirers. In the face of insurmountable odds and enormous medical bills, HelpJames.org and several participating individuals and organizations have banned together to launch a new fundraising campaign.

Since Marshall?s tragic accident, HelpJames.org has raised over $60,000 in cash donations in combined efforts through the HelpJames.org website and at the Outlaw Ride Day held at Glen Helen Parkway. With over 1000 unique website donors, organizers are asking that donors again come together to keep James on the steady path towards recovery. To raise $125,000, it would only take 2,500 people each donating $50 to raise the full amount. Although $125,000 is a daunting amount to raise, supporters and contributors have been encouraged by the outpouring of generosity over the past 12 weeks.

James was hospitalized at the Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego for nearly 8 weeks after his accident where he experienced sporadic feeling in his legs. Today, James is located at Hermann Memorial Hospital in Houston Texas and has near full feeling his left arm and shoulders with mobility through his wrist and lower hand. He is continuing to make progress with his right arm but has very limited mobility. Although he is still currently paralyzed from the mid chest down, James continues to make progress little by little and desperately needs to begin intensive physical therapy. James has been notified this past week that his medical insurance will expire effective May 31st leaving him and his family with the challenge of over $125,000 in rehabilitation bills.

HelpJames.org is also launching a new wave of autographed jerseys on ebay this week. There are a total of 39 autographed jerseys collected from riders with many of them being worn by the actual riders. Some jerseys to be auctioned include Ricky Carmichael, James Stewart, Andrew Short, Grant Langston, Josh Grant to name a few. Each week will have several new jerseys listed.

I have heard ZERO negative comments about this kid. He has the heart to push back to 100%. For James, I truly hope that is enough. He deserves it!
