Zach is a 17 yr. old Junior on the Perham Yellowjacket's Basketball team who collapsed during a varsity game on Jan. 20. After receiving emergency medical procedures, he was taken to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, where open heart surgery was performed. Once stable, Zach was moved to the University of Minnesota on Sunday for more specialized care. A fund has been set up at United Community Bank in Perham to help his family defray medical costs. Donation’s can be made at any UCB location in the name of the Zach Gabbard Fund. They can also be sent to United Community Bank at 155 Second Street SW, Perham MN 56573.
If any of you are planning to attend the MSHSL boys basketball tournament at the Target Center next week, please stop by my table to say hi! I will be selling my book on the concourse (section 101/138), Thursday evening, all day Friday and Saturday. I would love to meet anyone who followed Zach's story and/or supported the Gabbards!
