This is the Bob and Mary Trask Fund. The money raised will help with Bob's medical and both Bob and Mary's travel cost to Australia.

Four years ago Bob, while waiting for a red light to change, was rear ended by a truck. The result of this accident has been chronic head and neck pain. Bob has seen many doctors who specialize in neck injuries and although some of their procedures have been helpful, none have been able to relieve his pain. A doctor in Perth Australia specializes in this type of injury and Bob's doctor has recommended that he go see him.

Bob and his wife Mary Trask have dedicated their lives to lifting up those in need, nurturing the families in our community and around the world. We know them for their leadership in the Bikes for Ghana project, the local food and clothing drives that made the annual ARAS Harvest Festival Possible (, serving meals at Tent City, and the Orion Teen Center. To serve beside them is to witness the spirit of unconditional giving and acceptance.

This is where we, as a community come in! This trip and operation is going to be financially burdensome. The flight alone cost $10,000. The money donated will be used towards travel and medical costs for the Trasks.

As Bob and Mary have shown us throughout the years, amazing hurdles can be crossed as we share the work and bring our resources together towards a common goal!
