THE STORY:

Fun Walk/Run to Benefit Grace Fisher

Sponsored by SB Firefighters Assoc Charity Fund, Tri-Counties CPTA, ParentClick, Arturo's Barbershop, Aqua Nail Bar, El Capitan Canyon, Fox & Goss Antiques, Starbucks-5 Points, 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 brought on paralysis from her neck down. We had a reason to cheer recently when Grace moved her arm a few inches on her own! Enthusiastic friends, relatives and members of the Santa Barbara community are gathering to cheer on Gracie and lend financial support to her family with an amazing all day event! We hope to raise enough to help her family buy an accessible van to get her to appointments and around town!

On Sunday, April 26, 9 am to 5pm 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.
