Event Description

Two Y Guides tribes, the Free Birds and the Singing Sharks, are sponsoring a 5K Walk around Raleigh’s historic Oakwood neighborhood to honor and help contribute to Jason and Jessica Beyer. On Jan. 7, 2013, two armed men invaded Jason and Jessica Beyer’s home while they slept. In an act of heroism, Jason confronted the invaders giving Jessica the opportunity to escape and bring help. Having suffered a gunshot wound to the back, Jason sustained a spinal injury and is now in need of considerable rehabilitation and accommodation. Jessica has been a tremendous support to Jason, but will also require care for her psychological and emotional wounds. The money raised will help support Jason and Jessica’s ongoing needs, such as medical costs, home renovations and mobility among other things.
