An online fundraiser has been set up for Park4MX owner and operator Cheyne Boyd, who was seriously injured and required lifesaving surgery in Melbourne last month.

In the incident on 22 October, Boyd broke 17 ribs and ruptured an artery near his heart, which resulted in him being administered 21 bags of blood to stabilise blood pressure.

Following emergency invasive open heart surgery to stop internal bleeding, Boyd was placed in an induced coma for five days and could spend up to eight weeks hospitalised in his lengthy road to recovery.

In addition, former professional national level racer Boyd suffered fractured to his C4 and C5 vertebrae, as well as his pelvis and hip, thoracic, and had collapsed lungs from his extensive injuries.

Boyd’s GoFund Me fundraiser can be found at https://gf.me/u/y7d3p5. Any contributions will be greatly appreciated and will also go a long way following the recent effects COVID-19 has had on Park4MX during 2020.
