Race For Spencer Cobb

Spencer Cobb, a Senior at Spring Lake High School, suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury after jumping into a nearby lake on Halloween night. He lost all motor function from the torso down and went into surgery to replace two vertebrae. He stayed at Mary Free Bed in the Pediatric Neuro Unit. Since then, he has undergone hours of PT and OT and has made great strides in his recovery. Spencer is now home in Spring Lake, and he is moving forward with outpatient therapy.

A portion of the Tri-Cities Kiwanis Fall Fest Run will go to the recovery and support of Spencer Cobb and his family as they continue on their journey.
