Rally for Riley

Posted on February 25, 2009 Under Life

On January 10th, JoshSpear.com friend and action sports industry staple Riley Poor was involved in an accident in Vermont that resulted in a serious spinal cord injury. Among the many hats Riley wears in the ski industry: he’s X Games champion Simon Dumont’s personal camera guy, a videographer for Poor Boyz Productions (they just won Powder Magazine’s Movie of the Year Award for Reasons), and the Nike 6.0 Team Manager. Riley is now in an intense rehab program at the renowned Craig Hospital in Denver, continuing his rehabilitation and eventual full recovery. His spirit has been truly extraordinary through this ordeal, and he has come to be an inspiration to many.

Riley’s friends are coming together for a fundraising event and you’re all invited. The Rally for Riley is this Saturday night (2/28) at Sutra in Denver. Full details in the flyer after the jump. Hope to see you there for drinks, dancing (DJ Sounds Supreme and DJ Jesse James will be spinning), raffle prizes, and a celebration of Riley’s spirit.
