JACKSONVILLE -

Lace up your running shoes, at 8:00 a.m. Saturday a run is taking place to help injured wrestler Hugo Rubirosa.

The run will be at Jacksonville High School. Hand cyclists and wheelchair participants will start at 7:55 a.m. 10k racers will start at 8 a.m. and 5k racers will start at 8:05 a.m.

All the proceeds from this race will go toward student, Hugo Rubirosa. Hugo suffered a serious neck injury during a meet in early January. He has been recovering at Vidant Medical Center and is getting feeling back in parts of his body. If you cannot make it to the race today, but would still like to help Hugo.
