About This Activity

Our 5k run, 15 & 35 mile bike ride & Duathlon are set up as fun run & rides. Damon Johnson is a 21 year old young man who grew up in Englewood Florida. He rode motor cross and played football most of his life. Damon was attending SCF Community College and working at the Gasprilla Inn. On his way home from work May 2014 he had a freak accident on his motorcycle that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Damon spent over a month in Tampa General Hospital undergoing surgeries and daily challenges. Unfortunately with all the insurances changes in life these days Damon had no medical insurance at the time of his accident. He and his family’s medical expenses as well as home conversion to wheel chair accessibility are extremely high. We have created these event to help with those expeses.
