A year and a half ago, our family’s life was turned upside down when my perfectly healthy nephew, Levi, suddenly couldn’t move half of his body. He was rushed to Piedmont Athens Regional and from there, lifeflighted to CHOA where he was in a fight for his life. He was diagnosed with an AVM – Arteriovenous Malformation in his brain. You can read his full story on his facebook page.
From there, he’s been in therapies multiple times a week and is completely wheelchair bound. My brother’s family has 4 other children and with Levi’s wheelchair, they’ve had to stick to mostly being at home due to lack of room in a vehicle. If they all go out, they have to take 2 cars, so when my brother’s at work for Gwinnett County Fire, they are stuck.
Some of my brother’s friends have created a 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run to benefit my nephew, Levi Brooks. There will be special guests and a great time to get together for a local cause. This is also a Peachtree Road Race qualifier event!
Please consider joining my family and coming out to Tribble Mill Park in Lawrenceville for this event. Register by 2/15 to receive a free t-shirt! You can see more information on the Event page on Facebook.
