Jacob’s Journey 5K Race In Forsyth County March 5th

Jacob's Journey

On December 24th 2010 a tragedy happened that really did not get the attention from the media, like a lot of other stories locally in the are of North Atlanta. Maybe being Christmas Eve, or some other media event thought to be more important, I must admit I never heard about this local story until recently.

A little boy of 3 years named Jacob was crushed and left without oxygen to his brain for 15 minutes, by an elevator in a home. With the help of Forsyth County Police officers, especially Officer Banning, and the jaws of life, he was removed from the pressure of the elevator and taken to a local hospital.

Things have not been the same for the Helvey family ever since. The reason for this post is to provide information for a local 5K walk / Run that has been organized to help the family pay for the enormous hospital bills and to give hope to Jacob and his family for a bright future.

Below are resources to learn about both the event being held in March and to read a bit about Jacob and his strength and courage, in the heart of this 3 year old boy.
