The Marilyn Fund

On October 3, Marilyn Cieszykowski, partner of Gareth Martins, director of marketing at Osprey Packs and friend of Verde PR, was seriously injured during a bicycle crash in the highlands of Ecuador.

Thanks to a remarkable effort to medical air evacuate her back to the states, the overall outlook is for a strong, full recovery over time. Visit her blog to follow her progress.

However, the costs of medical air evacuation were not covered by health insurance. Local fundraisers, organized by Osprey and friends of Marilyn and Gareth, have started to chip away at the debt. But there is a long a way to go with over $50,000 remaining.

Anyone interested in making a tax-deductible contribution can send a check to:
