ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Friends of a Westover High graduate will raise money this weekend after a tragic accident left the young man working to regain movement in his legs and arms.
Grant Brunson is a freshman at Georgia Tech.
A few weeks ago, he was injured during a team-building activity with his fraternity.
He fractured his C5 vertebrae.
His friends, including Hope Joiner, are planning a series of fundraisers to help his family pay for his medical bills.
"When stuff like this happens, I think it's really easy to feel helpless and feel like there's absolutely nothing you can do, because I'm not a doctor. I can't heal him. So, it was just anything we could do to help him is what we were going to do," said Joiner.
Here are the fundraisers:
Saturday, December 3: World Camp Crossfit community workout at 9 a.m. They will be taking donations to go straight to Grant's medical expenses.
Sunday, December 4: Car wash and bake sale at World Camp Crossfit from 12 to 4 p.m.
World Camp Crossfit is located at 2722 Dawson Road in Albany.
