Help Rick get BARDE STRONG again!

Donation protected
Rick Barde contracted Covid pneumonia and entered the hospital over 6 weeks ago.  He is at OHSU and is making progress albeit slowly.  He was able to take 7 steps yesterday and his strength is improving daily.  He will soon be going into rehab.  Once he is able to return home he would benefit from a hot tub to help with his long road to recovery.  

We are asking his friends, family and the Bridlemile community to contribute to help Rick achieve his goals .  Medical costs will no doubt  be an issue so money raised will also  help with them as well.  

Rick has been a selfless, energetic, positive and  humorous  friend  to many as well as a beloved teacher to over 900 students.   Let's all dig into our pockets to show our support .  Together we can  help Rick become Barde strong again!

Help us put this "DUCK" in the pond! ( A little of his U of Oregon humor there)
