The Tacoma News Tribune reports that organizers have announced the first ever 5K run to raise funds for 15-year-old Jacoby Miles, a Puyallup gymnast who suffered a devastating fall during a routine move at Roach Gymnastics in Sumner last November that left her paralyzed from the mid-chest down.
Miles was released from the hospital just before Christmas following a tremendous public outpouring of support.
The entry fee to participate is $25 if you sign up in advance, and $30 for day-of registration. It begins at 9 a.m. at the Rogers High School track. For more information or to register, visit www.databarevents.com/runforjacoby.asp.
