Tanner Chadwick is a dirtbike rider from Blackfoot Idaho. I was able to meet Tanner last summer at Saint Anthony Dunes while filming for Powerband Films upcoming film. Him and his family go back a long ways with a local friend of mine. So from witnessing his immense talent riding on his social media and word of mouth I was looking forward to getting to know him. He’s a local legend, there's no doubt about it, he goes huge out at the dunes. Just a real humble guy who likes to have fun riding. He also has a wife and a young family to look after.

Recently during a family trip to Caineville Utah, Tanner was in an accident and is now in a coma at the hospital there. He was airlifted to the hospital and I pray for his speedy recovery. I have no idea if he has insurance or not but as you know hospital bills and helicopter rides are not cheap. Please help if you can to support his road to recovery!

We all know Tanner for going huge on a bike, his quiet and fun personality, and unbeatable style.

On 10/16/21 he was doing what he loves and riding in Caineville. He had a serious accident, and was life flighted to Utah Valley Hospital with a severe brain injury. He is currently in a coma, and is believed to have a deep midbrain tear. The midbrain is the topmost part of the brainstem, the connection central between the brain and the spinal cord. Medical updates will be provided on this page when available.

If you know Tanner, you know unconditional love. If you don’t know Tanner personally, you probably still know the talent, dedication, and reach that has motivated and inspired so many others. If you are able, please give what you can to help support Tanner and his family.

UPDATE: OCTOBER 21, 2021

There have been a lot of people asking for updates on Tanner's situation, and some confusion about what happened in the accident. I figured we would post an update with the details to keep everyone informed on the situation. 

Tanner was jumping a section in Caineville known as the ski jump. The normal landing on that jump is over 200 feet, and Tanner has jumped this repeatedly. On Saturday, he was jumping his Yamaha 700 adventure bike, and came up just short of the landing. He ended up getting wrapped up with the bike, and rolled about 100 feet with it. 

EMT's responded from Hanksville, and found Tanner unconscious, but breathing on his own. He was intubated and sedated as precautionary measures because of the condition he was in, and was life flighted to Utah Valley Hospital. He has not regained consciousness since the crash and his Glasgow Coma Score (GCS) is a 6.

Please keep the prayers, vibes, and support coming. Surely Tanner can feel the positivity, and Camille and Kreo can absolutely feel the love. We will continue to update everyone as things change. Thank you again for all of the support!!
