Rock Walker Recovery Fund

On April 29, 2003, Rock Walker was in a horrific car accident. After weeks of not knowing even if he was going to survive, we are thrilled to know that he has been released from the hospital, and is back home at Rock Walker Stables in Temecula, CA. Now all the extra expenses are becoming a reality. His medical insurance covers the basic medical expenses only. The Rock Walker Recovery Fund has been set up to become a central location for funds to help pay for Rock's recovery. The funds will be used for accident related medical and rehabilitation expenses only that are not covered by insurance. There is truly a need for financial help. Kim Weed and Ling Fu Wylie, long time clients and friends of Rock Walker have gotten together to become the fund coordinators. Kim lives close to Rock, so she will be his contact. It is hoped that the fund can ease the burden of the financial decision making, so that Rock Walker Stables can concentrate on being a show stable and training barn and all of us can help in the recovery effort of Rock. Everyone at the Rock Walker Stables appreciates the concern and support that Morgan industry has shown. The Morgan world is not very big, when someone in our family needs help, we know that we can count on you. Anyone wishing to contribute to the Rock Walker Recovery Fund can go to any Bank of America and say that they would like to put funds into The Rock Walker Recovery Fund or send your payments to: Ling Fu Wylie, 700 Hidden Lake Drive, St. Peters, MO 63376, 636.447.7741, Fax 636.928.9467,; or Kim Weed, 3151 Turnberry Way, Jamul, CA 91935, 619.593.7468, Fax 619.593.4282,
