On June 8th, our friend Andy Knepshield was pursuing his passion for rock climbing in the Pacific North West. He was climbing with a partner at Little Si in North Bend, Washington on the World Wall. While Andy was climbing an accident occurred with the baylaying process and Andy fell over 70 feet. An emergency search and rescue team rushed Andy to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Andy is currently in surgery to fight internal bleeding. He has multiple broken bones, kidney damage, and is in danger of losing his spleen. More information on his condition will be added as we have it – we know Andy will pull through this, but it will be a very long and painful recovery.
Andy and his amazing wife Emily are going to need all the help we can give them. They are going to need our financial support through Andy’s long recovery and rehab. Andy will be out of work for quite some time – we don’t know how long he will be hospitalized, how long he will be in rehab, how long before he will be able to work, or how much all of this is going to cost. As soon as these details are available this page will be updated. Now is the time to offer what you can to this amazing person – every dollar counts. Andy and Emily also need our love, support, and powerful thoughts of recovery and strength.
Please share this with as many people as you can. Andy and Emily are amazing people with roots in Ohio, Brooklyn, Nashville, Seattle and beyond. Friends and family from coast to coast, do what you can to help. We know Andy would be too humble to ask directly for this much needed support, and we know he will be eternally grateful for all the care and generosity sent his way.
