This year’s recipient of the Karen’s Hope proceeds from the ride will be Jacob Onstott. Jake was in a severe motorcycle accident Sept 15 in Yankton SD when a truck pulled out in front of him. Jake fractured 3 bones in his right leg, fractured his left arm and ended up having to amputate his left arm above the elbow, he broke his left collar bone, and dislocated his left ankle. Jake also fractured his skull in 2 spots and suffered from brain bleeding and swelling. Jake spent weeks at the Madonna Rehabilitation hospital relearning to walk and regain strength and abilities. He is now able to walk with a cane and makes progress each day.
How Karen’s Hope and Karen’s Ride got started was Karen Tolsma passed away January 12th 2017 from injuries from her motorcycle accident on June 4th 2016. Not only are we riding for Karen in her honor but we will be raising money to help families with brain injuries for Karen’s Hope. Karen’s Hope is a group that gives back to families affected by traumatic brain injuries. This organization helps families with gas.. Hotels.. Food costs in order to be with their family member during Recovery. Please come honor Karen by joining us on this day as we celebrate her life doing what she loved… Riding… And helping those affected by TBI.
