THANK YOU FROM FIRST STOP
Resource Development Manager
Thank you so much to New Horizon 5 for supporting First Stop as a Bronze sponsor at our "Largest City, Biggest Heart" dinner. Huntsville's homeless population is growing and it's because of the generosity of individuals and business that we are able to continue our work in the community.
Running with Shaun Wahl
Oct 17, 2022
Shaun Wahl is a 5th grader who defies all odds. With the help of his father and mother, Peter & Jennifer Wahl, and a New Horizon 5 consultant, Shaun has been able to traverse miles of rocky land, hilly land, and just about anything else that any other distance runner might see on an outdoor trail.
After Peter started to backpack as a hobby, his son Shaun took interest and wanted to join. Peter Wahl built a motorized chair for Shaun, who has cerebral palsy, allowing him to go the distances with other like minded champions on outdoor runs.
Shaun recently hosted an event to celebrate the release of a short documentary, about Shaun's triumphant story, which New Horizon 5 sponsored.
"My boy, Shaun, is on today’s front page story of the Ventura County Star newspaper [...]
The story also highlights that Shaun is staring in the fundraiser film premiere [...] Thank you so much for supporting that event!"
-Peter Wahl, Shaun's dad
