6th Annual Matt St. James 5k run/walk
Saturday, September 1, 2012 at 10:00 AM (EDT)
Matt St. James is a 2003 Churchville-Chili High School graduate. He graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College in 2007 with a degree in Social Work. As an undergraduate, Matthew was a top runner on the Cross Country and Track teams for four years. He was out running every day, giving it his all, running for the glory of God. On March 14, 2007, Matt was running at practice on the outdoor track when he had cardiac arrest with a brain injury as a result. After spending over 3 years at Monroe Community Hospital, he is now living at home. Matt has come a long way since that day. God is doing a mighty work in Matt. This running event is to help with the medical equipment (such as a standing frame) and a chance to come together and show our support to Matt. As a group over the years of this race, we have reached our first goal of bringing Matt home and purchasing a van. Praise God!
