BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Fans and riders in the women's Little 500 will wear bandage stickers on Friday in support of a rider who was seriously injured last week.
Lauren Gill was in a training ride last week for her IU Nursing cycling team when she crashed her bike – flipping over and landing on her head and shoulders.
The 23-year-old student was flown to IU Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis in critical condition.
As of Thursday, Gill was reportedly semiconscious and off a ventilator, and was listed in fair condition.
As a show of support for Gill, Little 500 organizers will be making available 1,500 custom Lauren Gill bandage stickers to all riders and fans.
Organizers said the idea came from Gill's teammates Rachael Dickerson, Chelsie Hafler and Kelsey Gill, Lauren's sister.
Gill's teammates have set up a Fundly site to gather donations to help with her associated medical costs. The site has already raised more than $7,000.
