A Go Fund Me account has been set up to help the family of Ayrton Climo as the Reston teen-ager remains in a Canadian hospital.
Climo, a member of South Lakes High School’s Class of 2014, was severely injured in a Go Kart crash in Quebec a week and a half ago.
Climo is an experienced Go Kart racer. He was on a practice run at Le Monaco de Trois-Rivieres when he made contact with the hay bales ringing the track and was thrown from his cart.
Climo suffered a head injury and underwent immediate surgery. His parents are reportedly in Quebec with him.
From the Go Fund Me site #KEEPFIGHTINGAYRTON:
