Space Coast Runners is hosting a fundraiser through September 20th to purchase restaurant gift cards for the Jerry Bird family. Longtime SCR member, Jerry was in a very serious cycling accident on River Road on Tuesday, 9/1. The freak accident caused significant head trauma which required surgery and Jerry suffered multiple broken bones.
In lieu of homemade meals during this time of covid-19, the family has requested gift cards to be used to purchase takeout. Only one visitor can be with Jerry at the hospital so many family members who have traveled from out of town are here to support Jerry and Jerilyn. SCR will use the funds raised to purchase gift cards from local Cocoa, Rockledge and Viera restaurants and groceries, if need. We will deliver them every few days to their home.
Please pray for Jerry and the Bird family. Jerry has been an integral member of SCR for years. He and his wife, Jerilyn founded and were the race directors of the Tooth Trot 5K for the past 25 years. He has given so much to the running community. Let us lift him up and support his family.
