Brian Hodges, the man that suffered a zip lining incident in Mexico recently returned to the U.S. The accident resulted in numerous medical bills that were not covered by his insurance company because the incident happened out of the country.
Today, Big Denweed's Smokehouse and Catering hosted a fundraiser to help Hodges and his family cover the medical expenses.
Leon Denweed, the owner of Big Denweed's Smokehouse and Catering, said that his motivation behind helping Hodges is due to communal responsibility.
"Let's get this man home, get him safe, get him feeling better."
The fundraiser started today and will go on through August 3rd.
