Snowboarder Kevin Pearce returned home on Saturday, May 1, 2010 after a four-month recovery and physical rehabilitation program in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Englewood, CO. Kevin will be living in his family’s Vermont home where he will continue outpatient therapy.
Kevin and the Pearce family would like to express their profound gratitude to the medical staff at The University of Utah Hospital for their expert care during the first chapter of Kevin’s recovery. They would also like to extend a heart felt thank you to the rehabilitation team at Colorado’s Craig Hospital for providing the support necessary to help Kevin through the second phase.
“It’s so great to be back in my hometown with my whole family. I can’t thank everyone I met in Utah and Colorado enough. It’s been a long road, and I know I still have a ways to go, but the support I have had from my family and friends, my sponsors, the Friends Crew, as well as so many fans has been amazing,” said Kevin.
Simon and Pia Pearce are very grateful indeed to have Kevin home in Vermont, “Over the past four months our family has embarked on an unexpected yet very rewarding journey with Kevin. We are incredibly proud of how hard he has worked to recover from his injury and take joy in all of the milestones Kevin has reached so far. We have nothing but optimism and excitement about his continuing recovery and his future.”
Kevin and the Pearce family would like to offer a special thank you to Kevin’s sponsors: Burton Snowboards, Nike 6.0 Footwear, Volcom, Amp Energy Beverage and Oakley Eyewear. They, in addition to JetBlue, have been steadfast in their support throughout this process.
