On Saturday May 27th, 2006, less than 24 hours after graduating from Tallassee High School in Tallassee, Alabama, then 18 year old Chase Borders suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury from a viokent crash practicing motocross. Chase was an up-and-coming star in the sport with plans for college and a racing career - until his crash destroyed his C-5 vertabrae in his neck - leaving him parallyzed from the neck down. He spent the next 8 months in a coma after developing Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome or ARDS. Having regained limited use of his hands 6 years later, Chase has now applied for and been accepted to start college. But to attend classes and take notes, Chase needs a laptop capable of running powerful speech-to-text software. His old HP laptop just won't do it. Chase's dreams of being a professional racer were dashed forever with his spinal cord injury the day after graduating high school. But his dream of going to college doesn't have to die. You can help send Chase to school and help him succeed by donating to his college computer fund.
