Preston’s March For Energy 5K In Wilmington, DE
On Sunday, May 5, 2013, Horizon Services was proud to support the 2013 Preston’s March for Energy 5K on Delaware’s Greenway. The Horizon Helps team was on site and the company served as the official race shirt sponsor for the event.
Get To Know Preston
At the core of this special event is a 13 year old boy named Preston who has Mitochondrial Disease. Preston suffers from lower-than-normal muscle tone and development delays which cause him to tire easily and have issues with balance which make it difficult for him to keep up with other children. Despite all of this, Preston has a love for biking and outdoor activities and has enjoyed the efforts of his family and friends who in 2011 were able to raise enough money to purchase Preston an adaptive recreation bike.
As a result of these efforts Preston’s family felt the need to “pay it forward” and Preston’s March for Energy was created with a focus of helping children with special needs receive the recreational equipment that would help them lead normal childhoods.
Preston’s March For Energy
Through Preston’s March For Energy money will be raised through private donations, fundraising events, corporations and grants to promote awareness about special needs and the importance of physical exercise equipment. Our main focus will be to provide adaptive bikes to children with special needs.
