A Successful 'Ride for Dan'

The Berschinski family would once again like to thank everyone who came out to Ride for Dan this weekend.  In total, the ride raised over $10,000!  Special thanks go out to Ric O'Brien, Annie DeRose-Broeckert, Rainy Chastain, Bob Arms, Bill Lynn, Steve and Karen Hopkins, SouthCrest Bank, Peachtree City Christian Church, and Great South Harley Davidson for everything they did to make the ride such a stunning success.  Thanks to everyone who came out -- I know I got a chance to speak to many if not all of you, and your support for Dan was absolutely inspirational.

For those of you who weren't able to make it, here are some great shots of the bikes:

And here's coverage of the event that ran on Atlanta's Fox Five News (added 1-1-10):

After coming back from the ride I spent yesterday afternoon with Dan at Walter Reed.  Here's a picture of his hand, minus the ubiquitous bandages. 

The center wedge at his wrist is the surgically attached 'flap' that came from his upper arm -- skin, tissue, blood vessels and all.  It still has a ways to go, but it's pretty amazing to see the new section take shape.  With his splint off, Dan also wiggled his left fingers for me for the first time -- the docs say he's going to have full function, but nothing beats seeing it with your own eyes.
