A Fellow Jeeper Needs Your Help!

Jake "Jester" Bratten is a LEO in Florida who was recently involved in a serious accident in his Jeep that's left him fighting for his life in the Lakeland Hospita ICU in Florida. He's already several surgeries and one of his legs was amputated at the hip. He's facing a long and difficult road to recovery, so we're getting a trail ride organized through Wharton to raise some funds for his family.

Details:

WHEN: Saturday March 27th @ 9:30 AM
WHERE: Atsion Ranger Station at the intersection of US Route 206 and Atison Road in Atison, NJ
WHO: Any and all wheelers.

Tee Shirts will be available for purchase for $25.00. All donations and proceeds from shirt sales will go to the Bratten family.
Design is hush hush, but those in the know say they look pretty sweet!

There's a paypal site setup for donations from those who can't make it to the run here: http://jkcrawler.com/jake/

Stickers are also gonna be available to help raise funds for our man, JESTER's recovery:
First come, first serve on all






EDIT:
Posting info about this Trail Ride on a certain Jk-Forum got me banned from that website. Suck a fat one eddy.

Gonna try and keep track of this here I started a list of those who're planning on coming. There is no MAYBE list for this run. You're either in or you're out. Copy and paste the most recent list into your post and add your name to the list if you're going.

No problem. I'm trying to get this run as much exposure as I can. Jake's good people, and he deserves every bit of support we can offer him!

Rumor has it that you guys have some pretty nifty shirts ready for that run too.

Everybody in the area should come out for some wheeling, then some wings and beer at the pic. It should be good and muddy out there.

Rumor CONFIRMED! There will be shirts available on a first come, first serve basis. There will also be Jester stickers avalable, since Jake's handle on the boards is Jester. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Bratten Family

Oh I know it is confirmed . And they are sweet. Wait until you see the change that sniper and I made. You guys are going to love them. It will remain a secret until they are given out though.

Hope to see some of you guys at the run.
