In 2015 we lost our 9 year old son. He had courageously battled a brain injury received in a car accident in 2011. After his passing our niece, Sunny, came to us wanting to start a 5k to raise awareness about brain injuries and help other families affected by them. Less than two months later in 08/2015 we held the first Cody D’s Memorial 5k Run, Walk, and Roll for Brain Injury Awareness. My niece Sunny continues every year to put so much hard work into the event, around FT work, college, a wedding, and the event has tripled financially since that first year with God’s blessings. Sunny is such a blessing to all who know her and we all are blessed to be able to give back to the community this way. To give her this gift would be amazing!
