Via GoFundMe: Marcus was severly [sic] injured when a terrorist drove through a crowd of peacful [sic] protestors [sic] on August 12th in Charlottesville, VA. Marcus heroically made a split second decision to save his fiance’s life by moving her out of harm’s way, and in the process suffered a broken ankle, broken tibia, and several torn ligaments. Marcus works as a landscaper and will not be able to return to work and earn a wage for an unknown length of time. Marcus has not asked for anything from his community in return for his courageous acts.

Let’s come together to help Marcus cover his hospital bills/copays, transportation costs for upcoming appointments and surgeries, and lost wages so he can focus on healing his mind body and spirit.

We wish Martin a speedy recovery.
