Classmates Help Friend Hurt During Crash At Car Show

Classmates Help Friend Hurt During Crash At Car Show
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

UPDATE: Due to the weather, the event has been pushed back and will go from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at CorTrust Bank at 26th Street and Marion Avenue.

A Sioux Falls crash is bringing classmates together to help a friend in need.

Skyler Burchardi is still recovering from his injuries following a crash at a Sioux Falls car show earlier this month.

This weekend, more than a dozen of his classmates will hold a fundraiser to help his family with medical bills.

"He's super funny and nice," Kate Sargent said.

Witnesses say Angel Stevens pushed Skyler Burchardi out of harm's way as a van came speeding through a car show on Cliff Avenue on July 13. Before she died, Stevens is credited with saving the 13-year-old boy's life. 

"We were all just very shocked," Lexi Herr said.

"I was just really sad for him," Sargent said.

Burchardi did get hurt and spent time in the hospital, healing from a broken pelvis, jaw and concussion. Soon, his friends from middle school had an idea.

"We knew that the medical bills will be pretty high," Sargent said. "We wanted to raise money to help his family so he could get better."

Kate Sargent and Lexi Herr began messaging their friends. A group of more than a dozen will be washing cars for free-will donations Saturday.

They don't have a clue how much money they can raise, but say all of the money will go to Burchardi.

"It's actually like a good feeling to help because I think he's going to be very happy, and his family will be," Herr said.

"Anything will help him, any amount, any amount of people that come, anything will help," Sargent said.

The fundraiser will be held at CorTrust Bank at 26th Street and Marion Avenue in Sioux Falls Saturday, July 26 from noon to 3:00 p.m.
