Online fundraiser launched for teen seriously injured in Simcoe Street collision

An online fundraiser has been launched for a township teenager that sustained serious injuries in a recent collision.

Landon Robbins, 18, remains in hospital following the collision on Simcoe Street on Nov. 22.

“If you are fortunate as we are to know Landon and his family, you would realize how wonderful & giving they are. They are always the first to help others in time of need,” reads a post accompanying the fundraiser.

We were told by the medical team taking care of him that once his condition improves, he will need extensive rehab which will be very costly. We wish Landon a speedy recovery. Meanwhile, we are praying for him and hope for everybody’s support in these hard times.”

THE CAMPAIGN has raised more than $12,000 in roughly three days.

“I have been blown away by the overwhelming support to Landon and his family during the first 24 hours of the fundraiser. I want to thank every donor for their generous donations, love and support for that lovely family,” reads an update from the organizer on Sunday (Nov. 29)

“Landon finally left the ICU today and was moved to a regular room in the hospital after undergoing multiple surgeries. Hopefully, he can start his recovery journey soon.”

Eighteen-year-old Richard ‘RJ’ Harris died as a result of the collision.
