The Knights of Columbus are holding a pancake breakfast at Sacred Heart School Hall on Sunday, Nov. 16 to help the Methot family bring their 21-year-old son Brayden home to Williams Lake for Christmas.
Brayden has been in Vancouver recuperating from critical injuries he sustained during a vehicle incident in June near Kamloops where the truck he was travelling in with three other Williams Lake men collided with another truck on Highway 5 North near Kamloops.
Christmas will mark Brayden’s first visit home.
Norm Leslie of the K of C said breakfast will be served from 11 a.m.
An online campaign organized by local resident Geoff Moore raised more than $23,000 in a short amount of time to help the family through the months following the accident.
Last April Brayden and his father Brad participated in one of the most prestigious off-road dirt bike races of the year at the Odessa, WA., Desert 100.
Brayden turned some heads in the pro class finishing fourth in four hours and two minutes good enough for a top-10 finish.
“Each lap was 50 miles,” Brayden told the Tribune in an interview after his return. “The starting line was crazy. You were seeing guys going down right beside you going 100 kilometres an hour in the desert and making blind passes because you can’t see anything because of the dust.”
