For the City Times
On Sunday, August 28th the Wisconsin Rapids Aqua Skiers Show Team will be hosting a benefit water ski show for two of our members, Jackson and Ronan.
Before the show, the team will be holding a free learn to water ski clinic. There will be a basket raffle and “passing the hat” during the show. All funds collected will go to both boys to help with their medical bills.
Aqua Skier member Jackson was struck by a truck that was passing by our ski site. Jackson was airlifted to Marshfield where he spent 2 weeks. Jackson’s ribs, pelvis, hip and T1, C1, C4 and C5 Vertebra all sustained fractures. His liver was lacerated, sinus’s bruised and suffered road rash. Miraculously, Jackson is expected to make a full recovery with months of physical therapy and surgeries.
Aqua Skier member Ronan was recently diagnosed with acute lymphocytic (T-Cell) leukemia. He is currently being treated aggressively in Madison. Ronan is only 8 years old, but has a positive outlook. He loves watching the team ski and the team is missing having him around.
Food will also be available for purchase from Rocky Rococo’s Pizza.
