Adam DiClaudio sent in this news to help fellow BMX rider Melanie Denton who recently crashed hard in Austin, Texas..
“Melanie is a 19 year old BMX rider who was hurt badly while riding a spine ramp at a jam recently in Austin Texas. After shredding all day, she went over the bars coming down the spine and landed face first. She was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance and suffered some major facial damage. Melanie like many others currently has no health insurance and many bills are stacking making the situation a lot harder to deal with. After surgery and the ER visit she is roughly $9,000 in debt from this one wreck and is reaching out to the BMX world requesting donations to help during this healing time. Please be kind from one BMX rider to another. Giving anything you can will always be helpful. Every dollar counts! There is a PayPal link just below on the right that is linked directly to Melanie. There will also be jam that we are holding for her with a date to be announced so check back soon. Thanks Everyone!!!”
