I am a friend of Shawn Streiff, the person who was involved in the bicycle accident at 11th and U St, NW Tuesday. I wanted to provide you with an update on his situation and provide a link to the donation fund we have started for him.
Shawn is current in the ICU with a number of bad injuries — but luckily he is alive. He is still in a lot of pain though and has a long road ahead, so many of his friends have stepped up to try and help him out.
Shawn was a member of the Delta Chi fraternity when he was at American University, where he served as chapter president and also alumni adviser after graduation. He really believed in the brotherhood of the organization so we are trying to show him what it can do when he really needs it. We’ve started a donation fund for Shawn so his friends and family can help him out. We’ve been donating inside our groups but are also hoping there may be others out there who would want to help out after such a tragic incident.
Wishing Shawn a very speedy recovery. If you are able you can donate to Shawn’s fund here.
