A dear friend of the family is in need of support from the trekking community. I would like to invite everybody out to a 5k run, walk, skate along the Rillito path on Oct. 14th to help raise money for treatment benifiting Jessyka Murry. She suffered a traumatic brain injury and is making great strides with aggressive treatment. The Arizona Daily Star featured a story on Jessyka yesterday highlighting some of the difficulties her hand her family have endured regarding her treatment. The article notes how aggresive herapies have contributed to her healing. Please take the time to follow the link and get to know Jessyka’s story. http://azstarnet.com/news/science/health-med-fit/article_9ffa432b-6a91-5b56-9180-6f60a1358d93.html#.UBFfCEYBAdQ.facebook

On a personal note, your support means a great deal to me. I have been fortunate enough to have grown up closely with the Murry family. Griffin Murry (Jessyka’s brother) and I grew up closely playing sports and attending school together. Mr. Murry was a coach of mine; he taught me how to catch a pop fly. When I was 9 my Aunt Pam pulled me and my cousin out of school to be present for Jessyka’s birth. The Murry family is truly a special unit. They deserve our help and support.
Please please forward this post to others you know who have a heart for helping others. Like the Jessyka’s hope fund page on FB. A little support would mean a lot to this very deserving young woman.
