A Go Fund Me account has been established for Heidi Burkle and her 13-year old son, Reid, in wake of a truck/bicycle accident this week, which left them with serious injuries. https://www.gofundme.com/heidi-brandt-burkle
The Mom & son were on a bicycle ride to Ely in Linn County and later stopped at Dan & Debbie’s for ice cream.
Heidi and Reid were on their way home, along 76th Avenue Drive, when they were struck by a pickup, whose driver said he did not see either of them, because of a glare from the sun on his windshield.
Both Heidi and Reid remain hospitalized at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.
Donations to their new Go Fund me account can be made at this link. https://www.gofundme.com/heidi-brandt-burkle
The account has a goal of $25,000. As of late Thursday afternoon, nearly 300 people had made a donation, putting the total over $21,000.
