Bad Things Happen…..!! Featured

Bad Things Happen to Good People A beautiful day for a ride, and a hand or two of poker.  August 18, 2018 was just that. The smoke from the BC wild fires had eased off a bit making it easier to see and breathe, making the day a little more enjoyable.  

A riding club calling themselves Drifters Crew Independent RC and other brothers and sisters came together in support of one of their own, for the Bad Things Happen to Good People Poker Run, Chris Sawchuck. He is known as Joker, but what has brought this day together was no joke by any means.  

The run took riders from Greenford Provincial Recreation Area where pancake breakfast was served before riding through the foothills of southern Alberta.

Chris, a young father of two children had his life altered due to an accident.  Just outside of Cochrane, heading into a curve and hitting gravel (not a friend to bikers), having no choice but to take the curve wide, he went down and into the ditch.

Chris is still in hospital healing and learning to deal with the loss of a limb. Frequent physio sessions are helping as Chris is surpassing doctor’s expectations. With the use of a wheelchair and on occasion using a walker, Joker seems to get around pretty darn good.  His daughter has shown support by removing one leg from all her dolls…..bless her heart!!!

Chris has a long road ahead of him, but remains in very, very good spirits. It does my heart good knowing that this man does not have to fight this fight alone. He has plenty of brothers and sisters there to help him.

He still lives a normal as possible life, and I don’t think this will get the best of him.  No doubt there will be struggles but he is young, strong, determined, and very, very loved. He has a very strong support team who will help him through the best way they can.

My message to Chris is to stay positive, strong, motivated, and ASK FOR HELP when you need it. Never forget you are loved and your people are there for you.
