UPDATE: The PayPal e-mail address has been updated. If you donated to the previous one, please feel free to cancel payment and transfer to the new one.
We have a bit of sad news today. Chase Gouin has been going through some serious medical conditions and could use a helping hand. If you’d like to donate and help out, you can PayPal some funds to firstname.lastname@example.org (that donate button on the right should do the trick).
Please continue reading after the jump for the full letter about his situation from his good friend, Brandon Fenton. Below is a quick one from Chase.
This is Chase Gouin, I am writing quickly to say that the letter from Brandon Fenton is the truth of my situation, just in case some people think it’s a joke. This is a real and serious matter. Just for the record, I fully realize that i have not been an active/popular or relevant rider according to modern flatland, and I do not expect that the sport owes me anything. I am simply in need of help and hoping that some of you will be able to donate. Brandon is a long time friend of mine who has agreed to help me by reaching out to the BMX public. Also, my good friend Ryan Quinn from my hometown has set up a Paypal account and will transfer any donations into his bank and the money will be given directly to me for medical expenses only. I will be keeping all receipts so that I can prove my expenses to anyone who needs to know in the future. I thank you all for your time and consideration regarding my health problems.
