Team Back By Popular Demand is running from Miami to Key West to raise money for Trevor Wyatt.... you click, we run <3

Trevor was born in 2002 to our good friend and teammate, Jimmy, his wife Michelle and his two big sisters. He had normal development until he was 6 months old, when he began to have delayed developmental milestones and physical abnormalities. Following his 6 month checkup he was sent for a CT scan, which showed an abnormality in his brain. After multiple doctor visits and testing he was diagnosed with quadriplegic cerebral palsy. Later in his early childhood he developed a seizure disorder and failure to thrive which required him to have gastric tube place for feeding. Despite all this Trevor has remained happy and loving; the center of his family. While he continues to be nonverbal and is wheelchair bound; he attends the 4th grade in the multi-varying exceptionalities program at Edgewater Public School. He is a joy.

Team Are We There Yet? ran from Port St. Lucie to Daytona Beach last year right before Thanksgiving; this year we are Back By Popular Demand and running from Miami to KEY WEST right after the holidays…. when we decided to commit to running together again in February of this year Trevor was gravely ill and was in the pediatric intensive care at Halifax Medical Center for 26 days with pneumonia and sepsis. Michele and Jimmy were at his bedside throughout this ordeal. As a team we decided we wanted to dedicate our run to Trevor and his family and pledged to use this run to raise money to help Trevor & the Wyatt family. Miraculously, Trevor recovered from the bout and again is doing amazing, but the financial toll of the ordeal lingers as do the ongoing expenses associated with Trevor’s condition…. We hope you can help us fulfill our pledge to help.
