All,

As you know, Ted has served as the long term care taker of Birdsboro and has dedicated his personal time and resources to keeping Birdsboro accessible to climbers.

Ted shattered his tibia and will be out of work for some time.

Ted does so much work for the climbing community, contributing his time and effort to Birdsboro and never asks for anything in return. Here is you chance to show him how much you appreciate all that he does. Please help by sending any money to him in this time of need, it will be greatly appreciated. His address is 429 Glasgow St, Stowe PA 19464. This will be a lengthy recovery and any contribution and prayers will be helpful, thank you for your time."

That's terrible!

Thanks for keeping us informed Gail. I hope Ted recovers quickly and fully. That's a hell of an injury.
