Dear Athletics Community,
As many of you would be aware Brenda Pearl OAM, our much loved Official, and her husband David were involved in a serious car accident last Tuesday 7th June. Both Brenda and her husband are in a critical but stable condition in hospital.
Athletics SA President, Joe Stevens, is in contact with the family and we will advise the athletics community of any significant updates as they come to hand. Whilst understandably many in the athletics community will be anxious to convey their best wishes and access information, on behalf of the family, we ask that everyone please understands that the hospital are not permitting visitors or direct phone calls. At this point, only select family members have access. The family has conveyed their appreciation of everyone's messages of concern and they will let us know when their status changes. In the interim keep them both Brenda and David in your thoughts.
David has been discharged. He is staying with Tracy and hopefully will go home to Victor at the end of next week.
Brenda opened her eyes briefly today but can't talk as still has tube to help her breathe. She is still critical but stable.
