Springville to host dog walking 5K in support of Help Hope Live and Springville resident

Jennifer G Jenkins

Jennifer Jenkins is seated in a mobility device hugging a large dog on her lap and smiling. She has light skin, curly brown hair, and glasses.

A Hope Travels dog-walking 5K fundraiser on May 20 will benefit Help Hope Live in honor of Jennifer Jenkins. The 37-year-old has been living with health issues since age six and paralysis from the chest down since age 20.

Her work involves helping individuals with disabilities like herself to remain independent in their homes. The Hope Travels fundraiser will help Jennifer offset the uncovered cost of a critical therapeutic device, an electrical stimulation bike, that will ensure she can continue to stay as mobile and independent as possible – and keep giving back to her community.

“I want to thank everyone who has supported me from the beginning, and those who support me now—and always!”
