Tanner Strong 5K
Sunday, March 10, 2019
Start Time: 9am @ 215 Beltway Trail at Centennial Parkway
Over Thanksgiving weekend of 2018, 21-year-old Tanner Huesch was out with friends on a Friday and was shot in the back. He had surgery to repair a punctured lung but unfortunately, his spine was damaged enough to cause paralysis below the waist. Tanner was sent to Craig Hospital in Colorado for surgery and rehab and is now home. The costs to Tanner and his family will be immense and the goal of this event is to raise badly needed funds to cover his continuing treatment and progress.

This picture does little justice to capture the kind of person you were.
Three years ago we lost a teammate, runner, training partner, but above all else a friend.
Keep on running in Paradise Johnny.
