As you may be aware, on February 7th Alex Rutiaga and two others were in a terrible automobile accident. Alex Rutiaga, former Belinder Brave and brother to current Belinder second grader Gabe Rutiaga, sustained serious and life threatening injuries. Alex has numerous broken bones, has required several blood transfusions, and will need months of physical therapy to regain his strength and agility. His family has spent many days away from their jobs to be with Alex while he was in the hospital. The medical bills are staggering and overwhelming. Alex is now home and is recuperating. He needs constant care due to his injuries which limit even the simplest of tasks. Alex, Gabe and the entire Rutiaga Family need our support. A GoFundMe page has been set up and can be found at:
In addition, gift cards for meals, groceries, gas, etc. can be left for the family in the Belinder School Office. If you have any question please do not hesitate to reach out to the Belinder PTA.
