Marcellis J Caldwell Memorial Day Event (5/30)

Join us for the Marcellis J Caldwell Memorial Day "Skate, Walk & Roll" March on Monday, May 30th (9AM-?) begins at the Caldwell home (3931 7th Ave, Sacramento), see march map on flyer.  This special family event is in support for Marcellis, who was injured and paralyzed 6 years ago by a shooter when he was 18 years old. Marcellis, was a talented athlete and skater, when he was left paralyzed after being injured by a drive-by mass shooting on Memorial Day 2016 in Oak Park while his family gathered for a quiet Memorial Day barbecue. Marcellis' father performed CPR on his son until local Sacramento Police Officer Beth Glynn came from around the corner, and took over with the CPR, then Officer Jeb Trummel stepped in to help (both officers continued CPR) until Marcellis finally had a pulse. Marcellis was rushed to the UC Davis Medical Center with a bullet that struck his jaw, nicked his vocal cords and spine, leaving him unable to speak and paralyzed from the neck down. Months later, Marcellis began physical therapy, surrounded by the love of his parents and siblings and was finally off a respirator and thankful to be alive. Marcellis continues physical therapy and requires a 3-person care system for his road to recovery and rehab, a powered wheelchair, epidural spinal stimulation treatments, mobility travel van and stay to/from treatments, and a custom built home, which requires financial support for his daily medical needs. Come out to enjoy the "Skate, Walk & Roll" March and learn more about Marcellis (see the videos) at http://mjcfoundation.org/.
