A seven-year-old boy from Hayden, Idaho is still on the path to recovery after an accidental shooting left him in critical condition last month.
Today Anthony Best is still in the hospital, but awake and alert. Family members say he can read and write and is keeping everyone positive with his bright personality.
He still has a long way to go, however, and that's where you can help. This Saturday, September 27 is a fundraiser to help cover Anthony's growing medical bills.
It starts off with a motorcycle ride from Cruiser's Bar & Grill at Stateline, Idaho. Registration is at 10 am with kickstands up at 11, following a route that ends at CJ's Family Tradition Restaurant & Lounge in Rathdrum. Registration is $10, or $20 if you want an “I Helped Anthony” t-shirt. The fun continues at CJ's after the ride with food and a fundraiser auction.
If you can't make it to the fundraiser but still want to help, a fund has been set up in Anthony's name at America West bank. Donations can be made at any branch.
