Wegman Benefit Fund Asks Allied Van Lines To Help Injured Racer

Wegman Benefit Fund founder Gordon Lunde sent this letter to Allied Van Lines, seeking help for injured racer Tim Miller:<BR><BR>Please pass this on to anyone who may be able to help us.<BR> <BR>My name is Gordon Lunde and I run a non-profit company that assists seriously injured people. People who have been hurt in sanctioned motorcycle racing accidents.<BR> <BR>Last October a racer from California was very seriously injured and has been hospitalized since. He is currently in rehab for very serious head and brain injuries.<BR> <BR>His name is Tim Miller and he is about to be released in a few weeks. The problem is he cannot live on his own any longer. He needs full-time care. To have this he must move to Wisconsin to live with his mother.<BR> <BR>My company, The Wegman Benefit Fund (, has helped Tim and his mother financially but they are in a very tight position right now with huge medical bills. What I am looking for and asking is if Allied Van Lines and/or one of its carriers would be interested in assisting Tim in his move to Wisconsin from California. Yes, we are looking for a "free ride". Most of Tim's household goods have been or are being sold so there is not a lot left to move. Maybe there would be some spare room in a truck heading this way?<BR> <BR>Please consider helping this young man who is facing a very tenuous future and can use a helping hand.<BR> <BR>Any consideration is truly appreciated. There are some opportunities for promotion for whoever assists us through press releases that I will send to many motorcycle publications and websites. I know Allied does a lot of motorcycle shipping, that is why I am approaching your company on this matter.<BR> <BR>Sincerely,<BR> <BR>Gordon Lunde<BR>Wegman Benefit Fund<BR>3741 S. 71 St.<BR>Milwaukee, WI 53220 <BR>(414)321-2338<BR>
