Supporters have donated over $22,000 to help Bob “Coach Hutch” Hutch after his heart attack, and donations continue to flow.
Kristin Curatolo Franz shared more about his condition with Coach Hatch On this GoFundMe page:
“He has served the New Jersey sports community for more than 50 years in basketball, track and field, and cross country. He is currently the assistant coach of men’s basketball at Stockton University. He had a massive heart attack and had to have both his legs amputated below the knee.”
To make matters worse, Hutch and his wife, Janet, are still dealing with the destruction of their shared home in last year’s fire, the campaign says.
The beloved coach was hospitalized in South Jersey in a stable condition and faces an “uphill battle emotionally and financially,” according to a fundraiser.
“He has inspired many with his fun-loving sense of humor, compassionate coaching, mentorship, and loyalty,” Franz wrote.
