Help Support Chris Dufour

On July 16th, a beautiful summer day at Lake Winnipesaukee, a young man from Hudson named Chris Dufour experienced a life changing moment. After enjoying the water all day, he took one last dive into the lake on his way to shore. Unfortunately, the water was much too shallow, and the impact caused by this dive left Chris with a major injury to his spinal cord; he is paralyzed from the chest down. After sustaining such a life-altering injury, Chris will need all the support he can get on his path to recovery.

Immediately following his injury, Chris was rushed to the hospital then med-flighted to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center where he underwent surgery. Though Chris’ body has been injured, he maintains his amazing personality and determined spirit. He has opened his heart and mind to the support of his family and friends.
Chris is back at home now after spending a few months at Spaulding Rehabilitation Center in Boston MA. He has outpatient therapy a few times a week as he works to get stronger and more independent.

As you can imagine, any type of support you can offer Chris during this difficult time would be greatly appreciated. In an effort to help raise money, Kevin Radziwon and Chris' brother, Bobby, are running in the Worlds Toughest Mudder race in NJ in December. This is a 24 hour event and their goal is going to be 4-5 laps. Each lap is 10 miles with 30 tough obstacles to overcome.

Thanks for the support for Chris and his friends running for him. All of the money raised will be put towards his outpatient physical therapy, which is not covered by his insurance
