On February 20th, 2016 Utah paragliding and hang gliding instructor Dan McManus experienced a life threatening paragliding accident. He is currently going through multiple surgeries and doctors and nurses are working hard to try to save his life. There is no doubt that medical expenses will be tremendous and Dan and Hildegard (his wife) can use all the help they can get.
Dan is a long time fixture on the Utah hang gliding and paragliding scene and well-known for flying with his Australian cattle dog Shadow – check out this Huffington Post article for a video and photos of Dan and Shadow flying.
Dan will need multiple operations and the road to recovery will be long – complete with tremendous medical expenses. If you would like to contribute to Dan’s recovery you can donate on a GoFundMe page that has been set up – or send some good energy his way.
