BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The Praying for Crystal Abbott Coffman Foundation is hosting a 5k event in May to help raise money to support Coffmann.
According to the foundation, Coffman suffered a severe spinal cord injury last year while heading to her home in Leland. She swerved to avoid a deer that jumped out in front of her vehicle, ran off the road, and lost control.
The foundation is looking for businesses to sponsor the 5k for Crystal: Run, Walk, and Roll (wheelchairs). The event will be held at the Industrial Park in Elizabethtown on May 11, 2013 starting at 9:30 a.m. Deadline for sponsoring this event is April 15, 2013.
Pre-registration is also underway for participants for the event.
