Back in May, 36 year-old Eric Davidson was seriously injured when he was allegedly struck while riding his bike by 30 year-old Jeremy Jordan. Mr. Jordan — who has since been arrested for hit-and-run — was allegedly speeding out of a Safeway parking lot in Northeast Portland when the collision occurred.
Eric is still on the long road to recovery from his life-threatening injuries. Nearly three months have passed since the crash, and still, even the simple feat of walking is celebrated by his loved ones.
In order to help Eric’s family raise money for his medical bills and ongoing physical therapy, his friends have organized a benefit fundraiser on his behalf. The event will be this Sunday (August 10), from 4-7pm at the Fremont Ridge Bar and Grill (5103 NE Fremont).
Tickets are $10 at the door and there will be a silent auction and an all-you-can-eat barbecue (which is free to ticket-holders).
For more information on Eric’s recovery, and details on how to donate if you can’t make the fundraiser, check out the blog that has been chronicling the ups-and-downs of his life since the crash.
