“Please join us on September 16th and help support Joey.”
Joey Oberholzer is the Manager at Loveland Canoe & Kayak and has worked for our family for five years. For those of you who have been to our livery, you know Joey is the heartbeat of Loveland Canoe & Kayak. We have watched with pride as he has grown into an incredible young man with great abilities, a tireless work ethic and the ability to motivate everyone around him to bring their best every day.
On July 10th after hanging out with friends Joey was on his way home when he took a serious fall, fracturing his spine and neck. He underwent 2 major surgeries, one to fix his fractured neck and another to stabilize and repair his spine. It is remarkable that he survived the fall and subsequent surgeries. He will be transferred to a rehabilitation center to work on the next obstacles, the largest being his attempt to walk again.
Although this accident was a terrible tragedy, we know that Joey will not let it define him. He will fight ever day to get stronger, and with help from his family, friends, doctors, nurses, physical therapists and generous donors, he will move forward and create a brilliant life.
Joey’s expenses will be major, including rehab expenses and modifying his home for his new mobility needs.
Please help Joey by making a difference and helping him overcome this battle by going to:
