SCORE PRO MOTO CHAMPION COLTON UDALL IN RECOVERY After a severe crash that broke Colton Udall’s right ankle and back last December, the multi-time SCORE Pro Moto champion is in recovery from various surgeries. The medical expenses have become huge for Udall and his family and they are asking the off-road racing community for its support. “My residual injuries are burning/tingling sensations in my glutes, legs and feet,” said Udall. “I also struggle walking properly because I have nerve issues that prevent my calf muscles from working.” Udall and his family have set up a Go Fund Me page to help raise money for the extensive medical expenses he needs for a full recovery. “Over the last 6 months I have recovered with a positive outlook on life and the dream of one day continuing my professional racing career,” says Udall. With just a few more hurdles left to reach my bodies full working potential, I am looking at some ways of alternative medicine. I will be using your gracious contributions to pay off remaining medical bills and also multiple stem cell treatments. I am so grateful and appreciative to all those who help and contribute.” More information is on Colton Udall’s Go Fund Me campaign HERE. SJ
