A couple of days later, Garren came to me and said, "So Dad, am I going to do that 5k?"
I started looking for a racing wheelchair, and found the costs starting at $2000. There's no way we can spend that kind of money for something we want to just try out.
So I sent an email to his physical therapists, who connected me with an adaptive sports program in Charlotte. They were so helpful, and have loaned us a racing wheelchair! Garren has been getting out and training on the roads in our neighborhood. He is determined to do this, and we are so excited for him.
If you want to come out and support Garren, here are the details:
- The wheelchair 5k starts at 8:10am
- The start is at S. Tryon and E. 1st St.
- The finish line is at MLK Jr. Blvd and N. Davidson St.
- Here is a map of the course.
God has continued to do a work in Garren. It is amazing to see such progress. We cannot wait for November 16!
