Donations will go to Dave Hartsock. A man of truly great character who continues to inspire the people around him. Though he may not feel this way, those of us who know and love him consider him a hero.
Dave's life was forever changed the day that he sacrificed his own body to protect another. Dave is now a quadriplegic. After his accident, there was an outpouring of support from all over the world in response to a story run on ABC national news. That support has dwindled in these last couple of years so we are holding a fun run to raise money for Dave's continued, long-term medical care.
Before Dave's accident, he was a stand-up guy. You could count on him for anything, including a good laugh. After his accident, he remains that same funny guy. But one thing that stands out the most to Dave's friends and family is this immense positive attitude he has. He never misses an opportunity to make someone laugh or offer words of encouragement to a friend in need. We are all very lucky to have Dave in our lives and we hope that, through the QuadraMan 5k, we can show him just how much he's appreciated!
