Nesmith Family Fund Established

Bob Bullock of WaterTrikes, B&B Sport Aviation's Ted Bryant and Mark Gibson of Butterfly Wings by Gibbogear are sponsoring The Nesmith Family Fund. Ted Nesmith, manufacturer of the Top Dog trike line under company name Top Dog Ultralights, was involved in a crash that resulted in the death of a friend and serious injury to himself. "From the latest report [I received], it will be 2 years before Ted can even walk," says Bob Bullock. "Like a lot of us in this business, if you do it full-time, it is your sole income. And he has a wife and kids, and it's not going well for him right now. It's also hard to get insurance and the only thing he had to fall back on was veterans benefits.

"I don't know how much this will help ­ his hospital bills are staggering ­ but anything is better than nothing."

If you'd like to help out, make checks payable to Julie and Ted Nesmith, and mail them to: The Nesmith Family Fund, PO Box 686, Hughesville, MD 20637.
