Description

Martin Horn is an attorney and long term Durham resident.  On August 31, 2017 he was in a tragic surfing accident at Carolina Beach, NC.  He broke his C3 thru T3 vertebrae and is paralyzed from the chest down.  He is currently using a trach and recently went off the ventilator.   Rehab, transportation and other medical costs will exceed a million dollars his first year alone.  He has 3 wonderful children (Samantha, Pearce, & Zoey) , two of which he is the primary provider for.  His eldest daughter Samantha is now acting as her father primary caregiver/guardian.  She was in her last semester at NCSU, but has now deferred to care for him.  We are hosting a Holiday Family 5k Fun Run in hopes to help offset some of these mounting expenses.    

There will be awards for the Top Adult & Child Male Finisher and Top Adult & Child Female Finisher. 

The run will begin at 8:00 am at Woodcroft Swim & Tennis Club, and with a loop course through the trails of Woodcroft Neighborhood will end there as well (there will be a max finish time of 120 minutes).  

Please come out and support this worthy cause and have some fun with your family!  You can even dress up in holiday spirit wear! 

Just heard we might have a visitor from the North Pole :)
