FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
For those of you that may not know, BMX Hall of Famer EDDY KING was involved in a horrible mountain bike accident; he went over the bars of his mountain bike at Big Bear on Sunday, Oct 6, 2013, and was airlifted to the hospital. The accident resulted in a spinal cord injury that left him effectively paralyzed from the waist down.
Over the last 19 months, Eddy has worked extremely hard, fully immersing himself into the difficult work required for his recovery. Working full-time with the help of several facilities and physical therapists. Eddy's road is still very long and expensive; the bills continue to mount, and although by seeing the amazing progress in his videos it sure would appear that Eddy is all better. The fact is, that to date he still has yet to move his feet on their own. He still uses a special equipped car that he drives with his hands, and his day to day mobility is via a wheelchair.
Eddy is still working hard and still needs various physical therapy and has many medical related needs. And although I no doubt believe that he will one day walk again on his own, he still continues to need financial support in order to help him get to the recovery finish line.
So with much love, BMXart.com and I are proud to present an online auction to raise money for EDDY KING.
I am donating an original 20" x 20" painting (valued at over $2500) that I painted of Eddy King to be auctioned off...100% of all donations and funds raised by the art auction will go to Eddy! This painting took between 80-100hrs to paint and was inspired both my good friend EDDY KING and the amazingly talented WINDY OSBORN (a creative hero of mine) who shot the famous photo that graced the cover of BMXA (June 1980). The winner bidder of the painting will also receive a hand written letter from Eddy (suitable for framing). On the auction site you can also bid on signed rider jerseys and other memorabilia including a couple personalized donations from BOB HARO.
Please remember this is a "charity" auction, our total goal and hope is to raise $5000 for the Eddy King Foundation, this will take the entire village but I believe with your help and generosity we can do it! We Understand that not everyone will be able to afford auction items but you still would like to help so when you visit the auction site you will see a "DONATION" button which will allow you to make a flat donation in any amount you can afford (every dollar helps!)
The Auction starts on Wednesday, MAY 20th at 9:00am (PST) and ends on Sunday, May 31st at 6:00pm (PST)
(Please do not wait to the last minute as you do need to fill out a simple registration form with the auction site in order to be eligible to bid)
