Many of you heard, and we wanted to inform everyone at Roots, that Shane was in a serious hit-and-run accident today on his motorcycle. He is in stable condition and expected to recover fully from the accident, although it is going to take some time.

Many of you have already asked what can be done to help. At this point, please send positive thoughts and we’ll keep everyone updated. When the time comes, we will help organize support as we know they will need and appreciate it. 

We will continue to keep everyone updated on Shane’s recovery on the blog and during classes.
