Danny Cox Petaluma High paralyzed in swim accident

We had a very unfortunate accident happen to one of our graduated athletes Danny Cox. He was a star Long jumper, 400 athlete. He suffered a spinal injury in a water accident in Tahoe this week.He is currently paralyzed from the chest down. 

I am attaching the article from the papers.  He will be going to Vallejo in the next week for three months of rehab. He is surviving on Facebook Posts by our community and athletes. Perhaps we can flood him from the state level.

Donations for rehab costs can be sent to
"Danny Cox Rehabilitation Fund".

Stay positive. We're all thinking of you. I'm a PHS alum living on the East Coast, and we've never met, but you are in my thoughts and prayers. Time heals!
