BEND, OR -- Friends and coworkers of a Redmond man seriously injured in an off-road vehicle accident last weekend are helping with medical bills. Wildhorse Harley Davidson's Kelly Maurizio tells KBND News, "Ryan Rojas is a friend and coworker. He had a UTV accident on Father's Day and he does have a long road of recovery ahead of him." The 24-year-old is now in a medically induced coma following several surgeries, at St. Charles Medical Center.
Maurizio tells KBND News there are several fundraising efforts underway, including a GoFundMe page and a charity motorcycle ride. "A few guys in the shop are setting out on July third, they're going to a 1,000-mile ride in 24 hours. You can sponsor them per mile or do just a flat donation." There is also a Krispy Kreme fundraiser, with delivery planned for Thursday.
"He is a friend; we all love him here, and we wish him a speedy recovery," says Maurizio.
