2007 Thundering Hearts Ride Pics

May 30, 2007

The 2007 Thundering Hearts ride was pretty much exactly like last year’s- nice weather, big turnout and a great ride! However, was an additional feature this time- a skydive show at Camp Joyful Hearts. The jumps were spectacular, especially, the skydiver with the huge American flag, Gene Newsom. Unfortunately, as he was trying to land, the flag got snagged in the the trees and he fell the about 40 feet to the ground. Gene survived, but broke his back in several places and faces a long road to recovery after surgery.

(If you would like to wish Gene well, you can contact him at gnewsom @ teamfastrax dot org or Gene Newsom, c/o Start Skydiving, LLC, Warren County Airport, 2460 Greentree Rd., Lebanon, Ohio 45036 Donations can be made at US Bank to help with Gene’s medical¬† expenses. Checks should be made payable to “Jump Foundation”.¬† One hundred percent of everything will go directly to the Newsom Family.¬† The account is set up in the name of David Hart, DBA Jump Foundation.)
