The family and friends of Jake Jefferson are uniting to raise money to help Jake keep moving forward and get back on his feet.

As many of you know, Jake was injured in a speed flying accident over Memorial Day weekend.

In his pursuit to continue living life to the fullest, he was following the dream that many of us have to fly. Yet, unlike many of us, he decided to turn the dream into a reality by making it happen. Unfortunately, Jake had an accident which has left him in a battle to regain the use of his legs.

Jake has made incredible progress over the past few weeks. He has grown from barely being able to wiggle his toe to walking over 50 feet with the assistance of a machine.

Of course, there is one thing that Jake's strength and willpower could use our help in accomplishing. That is the cost of the great healthcare that he has been receiving to get him back on his feet!

Most of you are a part of the amazing support network for Jake over on Facebook. See the left side column to link to this group. There are over 1,100 people in this group and I personally saw it reach almost 1,000 in the first 24 hours after it was setup...days after the accident. It shows how truly loved Jake is and how many people he has touched in his life.

If each of us donated a minimum of $20, that would help Jake out to the tune of $22,000. If you can, donate even more...imagine how much more it will mean to Jake and how much further it will go. Think about it, stay home one night, watch a movie at home, don't get a latte for 5 days this month. As a group, this could be huge and really help Jake get BACK ON HIS FEET - literally and financially! Imagine how motivating it would be for him if he didn't have to worry about finances for his health care and could focus 110% on a full recovery!

There are now three ways that you can help Jake:

1. Online right here, right now.
This is primarily for those that won't be able to attend the Fundraiser in Bellevue this September. Or, even better, lets see if we can't meet this goal as a group AND also donate again at the fundraiser for a chance at some great prizes that are being donated!

2. The "real-life" fundraiser.
