Join us for a 5K run/walk, rallying behind the incredible journey of James! On June 8, 2023, James fell three stories, which resulted in a shattered skull and a traumatic brain injury, coupled with other significant wounds. In the face of adversity, James has left his family, friends, and medical team in awe. James has defied all odds, surviving the challenges of a traumatic brain injury, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and severe septic shock thanks to timely intervention and the amazing medical teams at the Craig H. Neilson Rehabilitation Hospital and the Thoracic, Shock and Trauma, and Neuro ICU's at IMC.

Throughout the subsequent months, James has embarked on a remarkable path of recovery, pushing his boundaries and redefining his capabilities. His resilience, coupled with a zest for life, has propelled him forward, surpassing milestones that have astonished those around him. With a determination that knows no bounds, James is not only recuperating rapidly but also embracing each moment with unmatched enthusiasm.

Among his many passions, James has a fondness for barefoot running, which encapsulates his spirit of liberation and vitality. Now, as we unite for this 5K event, we invite you to be a part of James' remarkable journey. Your participation will not only honor his unwavering spirit but also contribute to a cause that symbolizes resilience, hope, and the unyielding pursuit of a fulfilling life.

Step forward with us, lace up your shoes (optional), and be a part of something greater than a mere race. Together, let's celebrate James' extraordinary strides toward recovery and embody the very essence of determination as we take each step in solidarity. Join us as we run, not only for the love of running but for the love of life itself.

100% of the donations and registration fees raised by the Strong Like James 5K will go toward James' medical equipment, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and adaptations to James' living environment to accomodate James' capabilities. Every penny counts and we are thankful for your support!
