Hello Friends: As most of you are aware. James Marshall was badly
hurt qualifying for the SanDiego Supercross 2 weeks ago. James suffered
a broken neck. He is in hospital in San Diego. Currently his condition
is stable, however he has tubes in his nose and mouth and can only move
a couple fingers very weakly. I can not imagine how scared he must
feel. There is still extensive swelling in his spine that is putting
pressure on his spinal cord. I have turned over my Ebay store to raise
funds for James. Many of you, Lotus from Troy Lee and many more have
stepped up big to help raise funds for James. The James Marshall relief
fund auction has been a huge hit. Many industry sponsors have been so
much help. Riverside Yamaha-Suzuki James`s team from 2004 have also
really been supportive. My wife Laurie and I have donated about 20+
jerseys and autographed items we have collected. I thank all of you for
supporting our efforts. The problem I am having is now that many of the
auction items have been bid on and expired.
I am quickly running out of items to raise money for James. If anybody
privately or as a company related or un related to this industry has an
item to donate for this cause, please let me know. This cause is close
to home for us as James was a guest in our home for the summer of 2004.
He also made alot of friends here in Alberta as well as the U.S. He is
a great kid and we are committed to help. We can use anything from
helmets to signed jerseys, bike stands ect...A.s.a.p.
If you can offer anything to help , we are forever grateful. This is how we are doing it.
