Heal Fast, Candy!

Heal Fast, Candy!

Last week I received one of the most distressing texts ever. It was sent by Dan Gesmer, founder of Seismic and he gave me the tragic news that Candy Dungan, our associate editor had hit the guardrail during a run in Colorado Springs. I called Dan immediately and found out Candy had pretty much severed her spine. It was a total shock as I’d only been talking with her the day or two before. We were discussing her upcoming trips to the Philippines and South Korea.

It’s incredible to think how fast our lives can change in a blink of an eye. It’s also amazing to see miracles happen.

Aaron Hampshire has dutifully posted updates on FB and Instagram. According to Aaron, Candy was scheduled for a 10 hour surgery but miraculously, she only need 3 hours. The doctors changed their prognosis and collectively everyone who knows Candy is breathing a sigh of relief. It turns out things could have been MUCH worse.

The skate community has rallied behind Candy and a Go Fund Me Campaign has been set up.

Fundraising Campaign

Tibs Parise, originally from Nice, France. Growing up as a skater he and his fellow riders would apply a French green clay paste on their road rash and bruises.

  

 

Tibs is now based in San Diego, California and couldn’t find a similar green clay product here. So Tibs decided to create something by himself.

He started the company in January 2016 with his partner, and built the first ready-to-use French Green Clay paste in North America.

With 100% organic, chemical free, high quality ingredients, and clinically proven formula, the product assists in the healing most of injuries. These include from road rashes to inflammation, and more.

With his network in the skateboarding industry and action sports, he decided to produce samples to give away to X-Games athletes and other riders to see their reaction. All the feedback came back positive. Concrete Wave also had the opportunity to try one of the samples, and they found it to very beneficial.

So in conjunction with Concrete Wave, Tibs is launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise $4,000.
