Be a super hero for Britton on SATURDAY

[click headline for full story] The event will take place at the Washington County Fairgrounds, with the 5k walk/run for adults and kids starting at 9 a.m. and the carnival running from noon until 3 p.m.

Help Britton Thomas and his family with pressing medical bills and hopefully a seizure detection dog. At just three years old, he has had three brain surgeries. The goal of the last two surgeries have been to keep Thomas seizure free. To date, he has not had a seizure since last July.
Medical bills for all of Britton’s treatments are mounting and although his parents Straton and Ashley have full-time jobs, they face a multitude of payment plans each month, but this is a small price to pay for helping their son.
Even though he is currently seizure-free, there is a chance that they could come back and that is where the seizure detection dog comes in. The price tag is upwards of $16,000 for the specially trained dog.
The family will be hosting a super hero themed 5k and carnival on Saturday, May 20, to help raise funds to cover their mounting bills and hopefully get the dog for Britton.
