Online auction to benefit local man

Robby Keeler suffered head injuries when the ATV he was on, which was being towed, flipped and threw him off in February.

AN ONLINE auction to help a man seriously injured in an ATV accident in February has begun.

Family members of Robby Keeler set up the auction, which began midnight May 1 and will continue until 6 p.m. May 4 with more than 100 items to bid on.

Keeler, 22, was riding on an ATV that was being towed on Penner St. by another ATV when it rolled and he was thrown off Feb. 18, said Terrace RCMP at that time.

Keeler, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken to Mills Memorial Hospital and then transferred to Vancouver, said police.

He has since been moved to G.F. Strong for rehabilitation.

A trust fund in Keeler’s name was set up at the Northern Savings Credit Union and donation jars were put out at local businesses to help raise money for his medical bills.

The auction is at the facebook page Prayers for Robby and has rules set up for bidding and how to pay.

Money raised goes into Keeler’s trust fund.

If anyone has questions, they are asked to please contact Debbie Nigh or Caroline Lozinski by sending them a message.
