The West Rutland ATV Sportsman's Club held a special benefit ride for Maxxwell Broderick, 5, recently. WRASC invited Vermont ATV Sportsman's Club members from across the state to the Danby Dutch Hill Trail System for a day of riding, food, caring, and fun.
Each rider made a donation to ride as well as several of the atv clubs from across the state made club donations to the fund.
"We were very proud and impressed at the generosity of our fellow atv riders and enthusists," according to Ray Cole Jr. WRASC president. "WRASC was able to raise about $1500 for Maxxwell's family."
Broderick is a 5-year-old boy who was a victim of a drunk driving accident in Orwell last year. He is paralized from the arms down and is now home from the hospital; he will require alot of medical attention throughout his growing years.
"We were introduced to his family this summer and we adoped them for our outreach projects we do each year. We hope that the money raised will make it easier for the family to afford the trips to doctor locally and in Boston that Maxxwell requires," Cole said.
"The West Rutland ATV Sportsman's Club would like to thank everyone that made this event a success and that donated to the fund. Our club and the family appreciate your giving in the hard times," he said.
