Race for Tara

Tara Llanes had a terrible crash at the Jeep King of the Mountain, that broke her back and paralyzed her from the waist down. Tara Injury What a drag. She's a competitor so I'm certain she'll be back in some way. Tarek Rasouli went through something similar a few years back. Tarek Injury and he now has a company, rasoulution, to help build slopestyle courses and represent athletes and he does a pretty good job at it. Tara is still in the rehab side of things so she has some time to think about how she's going to get back into it. Last weekend a Race for Tara was out at Sand Hill to raise some funds. Our buddy Blake was out and took some pictures. Sand Hill Tara Race and he said they raised $7000 over the weekend. Good hearing the community is out to help. Keep it up.
