Softball Fundraiser Set Up for Paralyzed David City Administrator

SYRACUSE, Neb. – A softball tournament has been organized to pay for the medical expenses of a David City High School administrator who broke his neck in a weekend accident.

The ‘Swing for the Fullers’ softball tournament and home run derby, will be held in Syracuse, Neb. on August 19th. The event is set up for David City Assistant Principal Chad Fuller, who is currently paralyzed from the shoulders down after entering a lake head-first off a slip and slide near St. Paul, Neb.

Fuller taught and coached at Syracuse before going to David City in 2014.

Husker football and volleyball tickets, as well as Kansas City Chiefs tickets will be offered up for raffle at the event in southeast Nebraska. Donations can also be sent to any US Bank location, or Countryside Bank in Syracuse.

All the funds gathered will go to the Fuller family to pay for medical expenses.

Fuller continues to use a ventilator at a Grand Island hospital. He broke four vertebrae in the water-related accident.
