In 2012 while away at summer camp, 12 year old Franklin resident Will NeSmith suffered a spontaneous brain hemorrhage - an event that occurs in less than .01% of the population.

He also discovered that the long term physical, occupational and speech therapy he needed would not be covered by his health insurance.
Will founded the WIllPower 5k to celebrate his survival, fund his ongoing rehabilitation and raise money for Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) - the genetic condition that led Will's brain to bleed.
