Canadian road cyclist Ellen Watters was in a devastating cycling accident on December 23rd in Sussex, New Brunswick. A Go Fund Me page has been set up to assist her family and loved ones with financial support for travel and expenses in this difficult time. If you are able to give, it is hugely appreciated. If not, your continued love and support is even better. Note that Go Fund Me does take a portion of monies raised, so if you have the opportunity to contribute in person that is ideal.

An update from Ellen Watters' family posted on our Facebook reports that has sustained serious injuries and is not expected to recover. Our thoughts and wishes are with them:
I want to thank everyone for the stupendous outpouring of support which have been sent to Ellen Watters, and to our family. The love, strength and joy which Ellen has always shared around her have come rushing right back to her. I couldn't be more grateful for all the support which her family has recieved from dear friends, and from all of the cycling community.
At this time, Ellen is still stable and receiving respiratory support. However, given her injuries and the results of scans and observation over the past few days, we do not anticipate a recovery. This news is truly heartbreaking for me to have to share. Ellen's incredible strength and tenacity make this all the more difficult to take in.
Please keep Ellen's vibrancy shining through your memories of her, the joy you share with the world, and every great big laugh you just can't keep to yourself.
Until we have more news to share, we'd appreciate some space while we try to cope with this news.
