Chick-fil-A Event to Benefit Injured Cornerstone Quarterback

Between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Thursday, the community is encouraged to dine on behalf of 17-year-old Dax Ryan McGregor, the senior quarterback at Cornerstone Christian who suffered traumatic brain injuries during a Sept. 21 game.

Chick-fil-A in Murrieta will donate a proceed of its sales Thursday, Oct. 4, to a local high school football quarterback who is recovering from traumatic injuries.

Between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Thursday, the community is encouraged to dine on behalf of Dax Ryan McGregor.

Dax, 17, a senior at Cornerstone Christian High School in Wildomar, suffered traumatic brain injuries during a game Sept. 21. He remained in critical condition for more than a week.

As of an Oct. 1 update, though, doctors had removed Dax's breathing support.

"He is breathing on his own and trying to speak. He is alert, responsive and aware," according to the update on GiveForward.com. "He still has Aspiration Pneumonia"

Based on the evening sales, Chick-fil-A will make a donation to the McGregor family to help with medical costs and family expenses as Dax continues to battle his injuries at the UCLA Harbor Trauma Center.

The donation drive applies only at the Murrieta location at 24794 Madison Ave.

Correction: An earlier version of this article indicated that a flier is needed in order to donate during the event. No flier is needed; the restaurant will donate a portion of the night's sales between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Oct. 4. Patch apologizes for the error.
