Please help Sven Englund on his road to recovery!

Our good friend Sven was in a severe car accident on Friday, June 24, suffering multiple vertebral fractures of his back and neck, as well as minor brain trauma. He spent a week in the ICU, and is now in a high level brain trauma rehabilitation center. Fortunately, his spinal column is intact and all other neurological tests indicate a positive and full recovery, though he has a long and painful road ahead.

For those who don't know him, Sven is the guy who always lights up a room and takes care of everyone. He grew up in New Canaan, CT and moved up to Stowe, Vermont last fall where he pursues his passion for the outdoors, especially climbing and skiing. He’s been working at Stowe Mountain Resort as a kids ski instructor by winter and at the summer attractions by summer.

We've already had one very successful benefit concert where we raised over $500 for Sven. We expect to have more events in the future, so please check back for updates.

For now, if you'd like to help, you can make a secure donation here. Donations will be used to aid in Sven’s medical bills and help alleviate costs to his family while staying in Burlington. Any donation no matter how big or small will help him on his way to recovery.
