WELLINGTON-A little girl from Wellington is hoping to make a difference in the lives of heroes.
Inspired by a family friend who was seriously injured while serving in Afghanistan back in 2010, Kirsten spent her entire summer raising money for other men and women injured while serving our country.
Today, Josh Sommers is partially blind, has limited hearing and is paralyzed on his left side.
Kirsten has been raising money to donate to the ‘Wounded Warrior Project’ in hopes of helping our men and women who were hurt serving our country.
Watch Kirsten’s story in the video above.
Meanwhile, we are less than a week away from the second annual FOX 8 FOX Trot.
This year, ‘The Wounded Warrior Project’ is the charity that will benefit from the race.
The FOX 8 FOX Trot is presented by your Northern Ohio Honda Dealers.
The race takes place Sunday, August 24 at Voinvoich Park. The one-mile walk begins at 8 a.m., with the 5-K run starting an hour later at 9 a.m.
If you are planning on attending, we have a personal guide to help you know everything needed to take part from registration, to parking, even donating to a great cause.
