On Friday December 6th, Russ was assaulted on the streets of downtown Missoula in front of a popular restaurant... a random act of violence mixed with wrong place wrong time.
Russ has spent the last week in and out of the hospital recovering from major head trauma, fractures in the bones around his face, and a missing front tooth.
We put together this fundraiser to channel the incredible support and love for Russ from the community of friends and family that have been supporting him and are looking for a way to help.
We hope he can use these funds to cover out-of-pocket medical expenses, meet his insurance deductible, cover the increasing medical costs of his recovery, receive necessary dental work, and to ensure that his other injuries heal properly. Whatever you can contribute is a huge help to Russ-- including spreading the word about this fundraiser.
