Austin Hoppers' Birthday is Jan 5 and ironically enough he will be laying in the same hospital that he was born at. Lets make this year special for Austin by showing our support and love.
We will have a fundraiser for him on Saturday Jan. 5. 2012 with games, food, prizes, drinks and so much more.
COME SUPPORT THE HOPPERS!
Save a life, look twice for motorcycles!
If you cannot attend there will be a chance to win prizes online.... Details will coming soon.
For those who know Austin, you know that he is brave and fearless amongst many other great traits. If you do not know him, please read either way. On Tuesday November 27, 2012 around 6:45 PM we all got the worst news possible that has completely changed our lives and outlook on life. We were told that Austin was in a terrible motorcycle accident which sent him to the highest trauma hospital in Pinellas County with life threatening injuries. Austin has major injuries to his back and doctors believe that he will never walk again. Those who are close to him know that he is strong, competitive, and that Austin has a way of beating the odds so everyday we pray and hope that a miracle will happen.

Austin and his brother are both champion drivers both in cars and trucks. So the theme I chose for this fundraiser is "RACE AUSTIN HOME" help us get this young man on the road to recovery. Times are tough, money is tight and with Sandy just hitting the eastern seaboard donations are spent. But we are trying hard to get this much need fundraising effort off the ground. We are asking a lot of people to give a little and you can help in our quest! Pass this along to your friends and family please. There are other relief efforts in the works but those will take a while to get off the ground. Here is what I am trying to do. Get a wheelchair accessible vehicle and get funds for home modifications to accommodate his new "set of wheels" . Those are my main goals for the short term. Please help me reach my goals by clicking the link or copying and pasting it into your browser and donate what you can. A dollar, five dollars, twenty five dollars a hundred dollars. whatever you can. And if you just can't do it THAT'S OK you can still help out but simply passing this email along to your friends and family. All of the Hoppers have helped out their fellow neighbor more times than I can count and now it's time for us to rally around them and give them the support, love and prayers they need in this very difficult time.
Thank you very much for reading this, please keep the Happy Hoppers in your thoughts and prayers. Please donate what you can. Austin will never walk again and needs your support. Change a life!
