Ant Purcell is our cousin and we think he's pretty cool.

On February 6, 2010, he was in Miami, Florida with friends and family to attend the Super Bowl. Anthony dove into the ocean at the Shore Club in South Beach and suffered a debilitating spinal cord injury. Thankfully, Young Maze was right behind him and immediately noticed that something was wrong. Young Maze acted quickly; dragging Anthony out of the surf. The beach patrol responded to the best of their ability, but soon realized that the situation needed more sophisticated care. They called an ambulance and Anthony was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Anthony broke his neck and fractured his C5 and C6 vertebrae. He underwent a four hour surgery and spent five weeks in the ICU followed by three weeks at the Jackson Memorial's rehab facility.

Since that tragic accident, Anthony has been working hard at Project Walk in Carlsbad, California. Project Walk is a great place. It exists to provide an improved quality of life for people with spinal cord injuries through intense exercise-based recovery programs, education, support, and encouragement. Anthony is determined to not only walk again, but also to help other spinal cord injury victims get the rehab they need.

We run races to raise money for this up-and-coming charity. It's safe to say it's gonna be HUGE. This is a worthwhile cause. Don't wait to donate!
