GOAL $1,000 Rev. Crystal Zerfoss is a mountain-biking, deep-lake-kayaking, evangelically-UU minister in the Pacific NW. As many of you know, Crystal sustained a traumatic brain injury in January involving the refrigerator door to the back of the head. Her intense healing process (which you can follow on Caring Bridge) has required that she step away from ministry and outdoor activities. But we can bring her biking to her as part of her holistic therapy!

Rev. Crystal Zerfoss has been faithfully serving the UU congregations in Pasco, WA and Juneau, AK since being ordained in March 2019. Due to the freak-accident causing a traumatic brain injury, she’s had to resign her ministry positions to exclusively focus on healing. I’m not going to sugar coat it. It’s been slow going and riddled with migraines. The pandemic has added to the isolation and complications.

As part of her therapy, her medical team recently okayed the use of a stationery bike. Her friends and family gave a whoop of excitement, because this is not just about exercise, but about giving Crystal an important piece of her identity back.

These are pictures of Crystal before the accident:

This is our vision of Crystal on the bike we’d like to have delivered to her:

For those of you who would like to follow along with her healing process, you can sign up for her CaringBridge.
