My name is Dale Neely rider # 826. I am a single father of two great and very helpful girls. I was in a VERY serious dirt bike accident at Portland International Raceway on Thursday, August 21, 2008. While racing in the 30 and over intermediate class, I broke my fifth and sixth vertebrae in my back leaving me partially paralyzed from the chest down. I also broke several ribs and damaged my right eye, however the doctors are saying that my eye will recover with little or no damage. I had surgery on Saturday August 23, 2008 where they put screws and pins in to realign and stabilize my spine and vertebrae.
My recovery has been going well, and I’m currently at The Rehabilitation Institute of Oregon (RIO), which is operated by Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital in Portland, Oregon. I am working very hard for a full recovery that may take up to 18 months.
If you would like to make a tax deductible donation, we have set up the "Friends of Dale Neely” Fund at all West Coast Bank branches. We also have the “Dale Neely Recovery Fund” at all Us Bank Branches, to help pay bills and medical expenses, since I will be without pay for several months, any help would be greatly appreciated. (Please check with your tax advisor to see if the Us Bank Fund is tax deductible).
If you would prefer to make a personal donation, or items of support which are also very welcome and appreciated, feel free to mail to: Dale Neely, PO Box 128, North Plains OR 97133.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and for all the help and support I have already received from my family, friends and the motocross community. This is one of the many reasons we all love this sport so much.
