MTB Accident Victim needs Charity

A resident of Sunnyvale suffered a serious mountain bike accident while on vacation in Mexico a couple of weeks ago while on vacation. He remains hospitalized in Mexico City at this time. He was not wearing a helmet and has no insurance. A private fundraising event is being held for Luis Leon and his family in Washington Park, Sunnyvale this Saturday January 18th from 2pm to 8pm.

For more information please contact Jimmy Ruiz at (408) 499 -5151 or jmjruiz@yahoo.com

Contributions may also be made at Walt’s Cycle in Sunnyvale and at Calabazas Bike Shop in western San Jose.

ROMP advocates helmet use and insurance. Riding without protective gear and personal insurance is not responsible. This underlines the importance of peripheral practical topics that ROMP will be investigating this year: Health Insurance and dealing with injuries.

The fundraising event described above is not a ROMP event.
