‘Race for Recovery’

Pat Morales, a Northfield High School graduate of 2009 – distinguished athlete in baseball, cross country, basketball, and hockey – started his Norwich University career in the fall of 2011.

During winter break of that year, Pat sustained a traumatic brain injury that left him in a vegetative state, according to doctors.  His family was told that Pat had no remaining brain activity and that he was not going to survive.

Despite the prognosis, Pat not only has survived but has thrived and is well on his way to what can only be described as a miraculous recovery.  On Sunday, April 28th, an organizing committee of his friends, neighbors and loved ones will host the Race for Recovery – a 5K to raise the $5,000 he needs in order for him to someday reach his dream of running again.

The event will also feature a 1-mile race for children, and a Zumbathon.  All proceeds will go to benefit Pat’s recovery. To register or learn more, visit the Race for Recovery table in the Wise Campus Center Monday – Friday during lunchtime, visit the Center for Civic Engagement in WCC 230 or email 4achange@norwich.edu.

Run. Love. Hope. Be a part of the miracle.”
