BECKELY -

One inspirational Raleigh County man is on a mission to walk again and he needs your help. 59News first introduced viewers to Derrick Bonds in 2012. You can check out the original story here.

He is a motocross rider who was involved in a tragic motocross accident which left him paralyzed from the waist down. That all happened back in 2011. But the accident didn't stop Derrick--- in less than a year through much strength and perseverance, Derrick got back on the bike to ride.

Now his family is raising money to send him to a rehabilitation facility that can help him walk again. 

Saturday, November 16, the family is hosting a bake sale from 10AM until 4PM at Sam's Club in Beckley. All money raised will go towards Derrick's rehabilitation costs.
