Up’s & Downs Alleycat Benefit Race


Those of you who know Jake Ricker, his wife Jen Ricker was seriously injured in a multiple dog attack. The guardians who owned the dogs are not accepting any responsibly, so Jake and Jen are scrabbling to raise money to help pay her medical bills. If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, please help these fine folks by participating in this benefit race! If you can’t make it and feel compelled to help, please visit GoFundMe to assist.

“On September 8th, 2012 I was hiking with my husband and five friends when I was attacked by three large off leash dogs. As a result I had serious spiral fractures to my tibia and fibula that required a hospital stay of seven days and aggressive surgery where they installed a rod in my tibia, a plate on my fibula, and nine screws to put things back together. As you can imagine this is a life changing injury for me and I am now in physical therapy, but the doctors tell me my leg may never be the same.

Even with health insurance, my hospital bills and medical expenses have become overwhelming. Any funds raised will go towards paying off my medical bills so I can put this horrible event behind me.Thank you so much for your support!” – Jen Ricker
