FIGHT LIKE WYATT XC INVITATIONAL AND OPEN 5K
Woodmont High School is proud to announce that they will host the fourth annual Fight Like Wyatt Cross Country Invitational and Open 5K on Saturday, August 26, 2017.
Who is Wyatt?
Wyatt Banks is a 4-year-old paraplegic. He was just 7 months old when he was paralyzed from the chest down by Transverse Myelitis. He is one of the youngest people to ever propel his own wheelchair. His story has been featured on Fox Carolina and CNN Headline News. You can learn more about Wyatt by visiting his Facebook page, Wyatt’s Fight Against TM or on Instagram @fightlikewyatt.
Why is the event held?
The costs associated with paralysis are staggering. The Reeve Foundation estimates that the average yearly cost for a paraplegic is over $66,000 each year. All funds raised will be used for medical expenses and equipment for Wyatt.
Race will be held rain or shine.
Packet pick up is at Woodmont High school Football Stadium on the Track from 6:30-7:30 a.m.
Late registration will be available at packet pick up. Shirts may not be available for late registration.
