THE STORY:

Fun Walk/Run to Benefit Grace Fisher

Sponsored by SB Firefighters Association Charity Fund, SB High School & San Marcos High School

Seventeen year old Gracie Fisher is positively fearless despite the uncertainty she faces since being diagnosed with Acute Flaccid Myelitis in December. The sudden onset of this mysterious, polio-like illness has left her paralyzed from the neck down and on a respirator. Grace and her family face a challenging and uncertain road to her recovery. Enthusiastic friends, relatives and members of the Santa Barbara community are gathering to lend some emotional and financial support with this event!

On Sunday, April 26 beginning at 9 am at San Marcos High School's track, hundreds of energetic Gracie fans will run, walk and skip together in symbolic support of Grace’s marathon recovery journey. No running is required! You can help by attending and/or fundraising.
