Walk and Roll for Spina bifida held in Winchester
WINCHESTER, Ky (WTVQ) – Walk and Roll for Spinda bifida was held in Winchester today at the George Rogers Clarke Football Stadium.
It is a nationally recognized event that sees walks held across the country to raise awareness and funding in the fight against Spina bifida. Amie Moore, the organizer of the Winchester event, got involved after she found out her son Lincoln would be born with the illness. Doctors didn’t think Lincoln would ever walk or talk. 4 years later, he does both.
Moore says that her son’s courageous fight against the illness is what inspired her to bring Walk and Roll to her town.
“This little guy right here. He’s the reason I’ve done this. Um, it makes me wanna, I wanna be a voice for him. Even though he can talk, he’s just really shy. But, to be a voice for everybody else,” she said.
Another Walk and Roll event will be held in Lexington next weekend.
