BLUETOP Backup Power
Ricardo Duarte has been battling Becker's Muscular Dystrophy since he was eight years old. Even though he is now confined to a bed and connected to a ventilator 24 hours a day, Ricardo is able to live in his own apartment in Pembrooke Pines, Florida. However, when hurricanes hit the state of Florida, as they have been known to do, Ricardo depends on the back-up power of OPTIMA BLUETOP batteries to keep his equipment functioning when power is lost.
Ricardo's battle with Muscular Dystrophy is not an inexpensive one. That is why we were happy to provide him with his BLUETOP batteries free of charge and will continue to do so. While many of our typical sponsorships are more high-profile race car drivers, tournament anglers or world-famous car builders, we feel Ricardo's cause is worth our support and we hope you feel the same way.
