SYRACUSE -- Trevor Anderson, a 28-year-old lifelong resident of Davis County, was diagnosed with a genetic kidney disease that has progressed since birth. His grandfather died of this condition at age 32.
Anderson also has a bleeding disorder that prevents him from going on dialysis. Thanks to modern medicine, it is possible he can beat this life-threatening illness by receiving a kidney transplant.
Anderson's employer, Nilson Homes, is sponsoring "Hope Run," an event set to start at 8 a.m. July 14 at Jensen Park in Syracuse.
This fundraiser has been organized to help pay for Anderson's medical care, which will include not only a transplant but also anti-rejection medication he will have to take the rest of his life.
The event includes a 5K run, raffle, silent auction, bake sale and breakfast.
Anderson works full time, is a full-time student and has a wife and two small children.
