BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On Nov. 17, 20-year Baltimore police officer veteran “Hank” was shot in the line of duty by a fugitive. Hank lost a kidney, has broken ribs, and suffered multiple other internal injuries. He is now in a critical, but stable condition, and was finally able to come off the ventilator this week.
Hank’s family and friends started a GoFundMe campaign with an initial goal of $50,000 to help ease the financial burdens to his family. Hank has 9 months to a year to full recovery ahead of him. He will likely need more surgery in future and it may realistically be about 9 months to a year of hard work to get back to his former self.
Two of Hank’s stepsons, Rhyan Karr and Zach Karr, work for RagingBull.com, LLC, whose customer support team is based in Baltimore, MD. To help boost Hank’s GoFundMe campaign RagingBull made a significant contribution to the campaign and are holding a Facebook Live event on Monday November 23rd at 2pm ET.
The FB Live event at ragingbull.com/live/ allows RagingBull to alert its community to Hank’s campaign, and to bring support and increased awareness to our local police to give thanks for the tireless service they give our community.
Hank is originally from Riva, MD. He loves both football, as a Baltimore Ravens fan, and baseball, and supports the Orioles. He loves motocross, growing up following Travis Pastrana. And he and his wife, Judy, have enjoyed visiting the Hawaiian Islands.
RagingBull.com Co-Founder Jason Bond said, “Everyone at RagingBull sends Hank and his family our heartfelt wishes for a time of rest and recovery. We are grateful to you and your colleagues’ selfless service as you put yourself on the line every day and never know what your profession will bring you as you tackle so many unexpected situations. Thank you for serving and protecting our communities during what are already difficult times, and for standing on the front line!”
As of 11/21, the GoFundMe campaign had so far raised over $79,000.
Please join us at our live event this Monday November 23rd at 2pm Eastern Time at ragingbull.com/live/ for the live event.
