THE STORY:

Kate Beardsley, a Central Oregon legend, needs our financial help. She's a lifelong horseperson, and a search and rescue expert who's helped find and rescue folks lost in wilderness areas, and has recovered many animals lost in wilderness. She manages a non-profit all-breed horse rescue. To earn personal living expenses (separate from donations dedicated to her rescue organization), Kate works during summers for the Forest Service helping with annual Wilderness Revitalization seasons. She takes strings of packed horses into wilderness areas to haul repair supplies for Forest Service workers. This season, on Kate's initial trip out, and while deep in a forest, her riding horse stepped into an underground hornets' nest. He bolted, throwing Kate. The stump she landed on had a narrow portion sticking up that rammed directly into and through her left arm from wrist to elbow. Kate's companion packer assisted her to medical attention. Currently, Kate is bedridden with multiple fractures, her arm is in a cast and will be useless for some time. Meanwhile, she's without personal income for almost an entire year to cover living expenses. Kate is a unique asset to we who play in the Wilderness. We hike, run dogs, ride horses, hunt. Many of us have either become lost or lost our animals, and Kate's been available to help us. We owe her a debt of gratitude for the generous assistance she's provided through the years. Let's make sure Kate gets through this year! Please help, all possible! Donate here what you can.
