The Story

Casey Proud was in a frightening snowboarding accident.  Help us support his recovery.

While snowboarding on Mt. Shasta, this weekend, Casey fell and broke several vertebrae in his thoracic spine.   Rescuers had to rush him down the mountain and and take him to Mercy Medical Center in Redding, where neurosurgeons operated on his back.  He will be transferred to Vallejo for a spinal rehabilitation program for the next few weeks and then he will return to San Francisco to undergo physical therapy at home.

He currently doesn't have feeling below his hips, but he's regaining more feeling every day as the swelling goes down.  His surgeon said he is exactly the kind of person to make the most amazing recovery - young, fit, healthy, motivated, and POSITIVE! We believe he is going to make a full recovery. You should too.

Please help us raise money to support Casey Proud's recovery!
We come together as family, friends, teammates, and FC rivals, to ask you join our effort to raise money and support Casey and his wife Thera in their time of healing and recovery.  While, thankfully, insurance will limit the weight of the financial burden their family will incur, certainly there will be many out-of-pocket expenses to come. As their extended family, we can now give back to the man who's given our community so much.

Our initial goal was to raise $5,000.  Now we're well under way to making it to $10,000.
This money will go towards covering insurance deductibles and the inevitable need for medical equipment.  There's no telling how much Casey's deductibles will add up to be, so this introductory goal may be a mere fraction of what his family will ultimately need.  Casey and Thera's apartment is not wheelchair accessible, so they will need to install an electric wheelchair stair lift which, itself, will cost over $4,000.

Let's help get Casey back on his feet!

The journey of a single step begins with squats and core work.  Casey will be spending a lot of time here at Project Walk, an awesome training facility that specialises in helping folks overcome paralysis.  It doesn't matter the odds. Casey's a rockstar who will never give up!

GOOOOOOOAL!!!!!!!!  ...It's a Hat Trick for Casey!
We've met our third goal!  Together, we have raised over $10,000 for Casey!  Thank you all for continuing to share his story and support his recovery.  

This Saturday, The Brick Yard is hosting a USWNT & MLS viewing party, produced by Kick365, where Casey will be in attendance rooting on the Women's National Team, then the Seattle Sounders, in their season opener.  We will continue to raise funds at this event and raffle some awesome prizes.  More importantly, we will be able to give Casey our love, in person!

We're raising the fundraising goal again to provide as much support as we can to Casey and Thera who are anticipating a long road to recovery that will require 10's of thousands of dollars to cover insurance premiums & deductibles, medical equipment, and physical therapy sessions with a specialist.  If you've already given - Thank You - and Please keep sharing the link.  Thanks!
