April 22, 2012 (Santee) -- Join family and friends of Grant Fisher on April 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Joe’s Old Fashion BBQ, 205 Town Center Parkway, Santee to help raise funds for his financial recovery. 

Fisher, a San Diego County Credit Union employee, has spent most of this year confined to a hospital bed recovering after he was run over by an elderly driver in the bike lane of Sorrento Valley Boulevard during a lunchtime bike ride.

He is an avid outdoorsman and although currently paralyzed from the waist down, has a great attitude.  His initial reaction was “Why me?”  He is now grateful to be alive and indicated, “I can move my arms, I can move my hands and I don’t have brain trauma.”

If you can’t make it to out for BBQ but wish to help in Fisher's recovery, checks can be made out to "Grant Fisher Fund" and sent to:
