On February 8, 2010, Cory Allhiser died tragically in a snowmobile accident. He left behind 2 children, a unborn baby and a fiance
This year will be the 3rd Annual Cory Allhiser Memorial Ride in Honorary Memory of David Fretty. David was riding his motorcycle July 7th, 2011 in Rochester, MN when he was struck by a drunk driver. The family was faced with a difficult decision to send David to a care facility in Minneapolis that could better care for him during his coma. They endured traveling back and forth for nearly 3 months before David succumbed to his injuries on October 25th, 2011 leaving behind a daughter named Mariah who had only turned 1 year old 5 days before her daddy’s accident. The story doesn’t end there. David’s step father, Jim, who works 2 jobs to support his wife and her children, took David’s mother, Diane, to Chicago to be with her family during Thanksgiving to help her ease her mind over the death of her son. While in Chicago, Jim fell and shattered his hip, requiring immediate surgery in Chicago. While in the hospital, Diane was running errands and was brutally rear ended totaling out there car, luckily, her injuries were not serious. They had to hire a driver to take Jim back to Minnesota after his surgery and Diane had to fly back. Now Jim is out of work for a few months to recover. This family is going through their toughest time and we are focused on helping them take off some of the burden of the death of their child, loss of their car and the loss of their income while Jim recovers but the main thing is we would like to make sure this little girl is taken care of in their time of need.
