Please consider this fundraising 5k for a worthy cause. Here is the information provided by the event organizers:
This is a benefit run for a Hendersonville local that had a boating accident about a month ago and lost his leg and has a long road to recovery ahead of him. He is facing tremendous medical bills and the family has no insurance. They have a two month old baby boy. All proceeds to this race will go directly to the family.
