Dear Family and Friends,
I am writing to you on behalf of our brother, Mike Bates, a beloved husband, father and a true friend to many. Mike suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury following a devastating motorcycle accident over the 2011 Thanksgiving holiday. This was while camping in the desert with family and friends, a 40 year family tradition. Mike is now a C2 quadriplegic.

Just wrapped up the 5th Annual fundraising golf tournament and it was a huge success. A great time had by all and lots of money raised for the fund. Thanks to everyone involved that made it such a great event.

Thanks, Mike. Glad to donate. It's been many years since we worked together at QUALCOMM, but I think of you often and wish you only the best.

Hi Mike! just bought some raffle tickets (I guess if we win we can raffle them off again - ha ha!). Love hearing your updates from Panama. No need to send you words of encouragement - you're one of those stubborn, driven, never-take-no-for-answer Bates boys!! Keep up the amazing work Mike. We love you and send our prayers to you, Christine, and the gang every day.
Steve, Pam, Tom, and Katie Bates
