Cypress Calif., December 1, 2010 – As you may know, former Yamaha AMA National Motocross Champion, Supercross and Snocross hero Doug Henry, suffered the devastating loss of his family residence in Connecticut due to fire just prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Although the home and the family's possessions were a complete loss, Doug and his family are safe and as determined as ever to rebuild their lives just as he has done when other tragedies have struck.
The following is directly from the Henry Family:
The Henry family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude for all of the generous donations and contributions they have received from family, friends and the community. The outpouring of assistance, both of basic needs and emotional support, has been unimaginable and deeply appreciated. Due to the severity of the fire, there is nothing to salvage. At this time, the family is working to clear the debris.
Stacey Henry stated "we have yet to decide whether we will rebuild at the same location but we do plan on remaining in Torrington. This catastrophe has demonstrated what a wonderful community we reside in. There are many personal stories of triumph that have been shared with us and are the source of daily inspiration during this difficult time."
The Henry Family is deeply grateful to our brave firefighters, police and members of The Red Cross who were at the scene demonstrating great strength and courage.
Due to current and future needs, donations can be made to: The Henry Family Fund c/o The Torrington Savings Bank at 635 Main Street, Torrington, CT 06790 or online using the following link to The Road to Recovery:
