Pictured presenting David with the proceeds of the Spares for the Chair event is Debbie Pickering.
Last Sunday’s Fundraiser, “YANKEE LANES SPARES FOR THE CHAIR”, raised a total of $2,221 dollars.
A Big “THANK YOU” goes out to Debbie Pickering for organizing the event, Jeff Barden of Yankee Lanes for the use of their facilities and Ron & Jennifer Bush for their D.J. & Karaoke services.
I would also like to thank the many individuals, family members, friends, co-workers, local businesses from Keene and the surrounding communities who helped contribute and make this fundraiser a success.
THANK YOU ALL!
Total funds raised so far: $4,500
The Goal: Getting David more mobile by the use of a Tankchair.
So he has a way to go but I know he will get there.
We are currently looking for additional ways to raise funds. We are open to any and all ideas.
On behalf of David and my family I would like to Thank you all for your continued support. It does make a difference.

Bowl to help David get out of his house and into the woods! David loves the outdoors, but since the accident four years ago that left him a quadriplegic he hasn’t been able to enjoy what he lives for; snow, fresh air, excitement and adventure! A Trackchair will allow him to get out into the woods, to tackle rough terrain, and to get to the top of the ski area. This would mean the world to him!
Yankee Lanes Bowling Center in Keene – 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on November 15th
If you can’t make it on the 15th, you can still help by making a donation to his Trackchair gofundme campaign – https://www.gofundme.com/me556338
